    Hello @Shrikant Bhagwat ,
    I think you have to start with basics of "Ingress" before you jump onto inginx controller.

    Check out the below article which starts with "Ingress" -> "IngressController" -> "NginxIngressController"
    https://github.com/nginxinc/kubernetes-ingress

    Then see how NGINX Ingress Controller works behind the scenes:
    https://kubernetes.github.io/ingress-nginx/how-it-works/

    Once you are done with above basics , use the below document to deploy a sample POD and how to access it via NGINX Ingress controller

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/aks/ingress-basic

    Deploying NGINX Ingress Controller with example:

    https://matthewpalmer.net/kubernetes-app-developer/articles/kubernetes-ingress-guide-nginx-example.html

    (With above 2 running examples , I think all your above queries will be answered)
    (You just need to configure/Customize the above mentioned YAML files based upon your client provided values)

    Let us know if you need additional help on this .

    Thanks for Documentation

    Following are my nodes

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> kubectl get nodes -o wide
    NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION INTERNAL-IP EXTERNAL-IP OS-IMAGE KERNEL-VERSION CONTAINER-RUNTIME
    aks-agentpool-20294322-vmss000000 Ready agent 2d11h v1.20.7 10.240.0.4 <none> Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS 5.4.0-1051-azure containerd://1.4.4+azure
    aks-agentpool-20294322-vmss000001 Ready agent 2d11h v1.20.7 10.240.0.5 <none> Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS 5.4.0-1051-azure containerd://1.4.4+azure

    Are these IP Address Private IP Address each node ?
    Do they have Cluster IP ?
    Are these separate standalone nodes or cluster with 2 nodes ?

    I did setup Ingress Controller based on documentation

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> kubectl --namespace default get services -o wide -w nam-ingress-ingress-nginx-controller
    NAME TYPE CLUSTER-IP EXTERNAL-IP PORT(S) AGE SELECTOR
    nam-ingress-ingress-nginx-controller LoadBalancer 10.0.254.117 52.147.218.30 80:30363/TCP,443:31634/TCP 24h app.kubernetes.io/component=controller,app.kubernetes.io/instance=nam-ingress,app.kubernetes.io/name=ingress-nginx

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> kubectl get pods,svc
    NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
    pod/nam-ingress-ingress-nginx-controller-65d74469d9-j9r9w 1/1 Running 0 25h
    pod/nginx 1/1 Running 0 25h
    pod/node-debugger-aks-agentpool-20294322-vmss000000-g8xt9 0/1 Completed 0 5h2m

    NAME TYPE CLUSTER-IP EXTERNAL-IP PORT(S) AGE
    service/kubernetes ClusterIP 10.0.0.1 <none> 443/TCP 2d16h
    service/nam-ingress-ingress-nginx-controller LoadBalancer 10.0.254.117 52.147.218.30 80:30363/TCP,443:31634/TCP 25h
    service/nam-ingress-ingress-nginx-controller-admission ClusterIP 10.0.129.117 <none> 443/TCP 25h
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>

    I have application provided by vendor which is supposed to installed by Helm Package Manager. They require NGIX:Ingress to be configured.

    Based on output above, do you think Ingress is configured ?
    Thanks
