Azure Windows VM doesn't fully load certain websites

Chipchase, Matthew 6 Reputation points

I've noticed certain websites don't fully load on my Azure Windows VMs.

I've got 2 examples

  1. - page loads initially but then just tries to load forever.
  2. - when making a search on the website it also tries to load forever.


I tried changing the DNS settings on Azure, but it made no difference no matter what I set it as. I really know know anything about networking. So here is a screenshot of my inbound-outbound rules in case that is the issue.


Azure Virtual Machines

    Hi @Chipchase, Matthew ,

    in my opinion your experience is happening due to default security settings on windows, more specifically on your Web Browser, IE or Edge.

    Perhaps you could first get some clues from your browser Web Developer Tools, and when you request a webpage, you could see what URLs are being blocked. Probably some sites are calling other sites and your Browser security settings are blocking cross-site calls. Something quite common.

    Let us know!
    Best regards,

    I also have the same problem.

    I believe that Bet365 blocked VM IPs to access the site.

    I see no other way, if not the block from it.
