    Hi Amisi Espoir,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I appreciate your question regarding the network options for your Azure Open AI Service. Here is a brief overview of the available network options:

    • Azure Virtual Network: Creates a private network in Azure, providing a secure and isolated environment.
    • Public endpoint: Exposes your service to the public internet, useful for external access.
    • Private endpoint: Allows secure, low-latency access over a private connection.

    The Azure Open AI documentation typically outlines the necessary steps, including any specific network configurations required. If the documentation doesn't mention any changes to the network settings, it's safe to assume that the default settings are applicable and sufficient for most users. If there are additional settings or configurations that need to be adjusted, the documentation will explicitly mention them. This approach ensures that users can easily follow the guidelines without encountering issues related to network configuration.

    • For exercises: The default settings usually work fine. No need to change anything.
    • For real use: Choose a secure option like a Virtual Network or Private Endpoint to keep your service safe. Avoid using the public internet connection unless you really need it.

    I trust that your query has been resolved satisfactorily.

    If you encounter any future issues, please feel free to contact us, and we will be pleased to assist you further.
