    Please check the VPN Gateway tutorial there;

    It would allow you to connect to your on-prem site to azure, and after that you can have a network share available on your server to stock the CCTV footage on it.

    nb; You need a router that support to create the tunnel.

    If you want to connect to a Windows Server VM directly via a Public IP, you have the following options:

    1. Directly connect to the Azure VM via its Public IP over the Public Internet.
      This option is generally available and you can open necessary ports on the VMs Security Group to allow inbound traffic from the CCTV's NVR.
    2. Azure Public Load Balancer
      Public Load Balancers are used to load balance internet traffic to your VMs. A public load balancer can also provide outbound connections for virtual machines (VMs) inside your virtual network. The backend pool instances can be Azure Virtual Machines or instances in a virtual machine scale set.
      Here are more details on why you can use an Azure Load Balancer.
    3. Azure Express Route
      ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a private connection with the help of a connectivity provider.
      ExpressRoute connections don't go over the public Internet. This allows ExpressRoute connections to offer more reliability, faster speeds, consistent latencies, and higher security than typical connections over the Internet. For information on how to connect your network to Microsoft using ExpressRoute, see ExpressRoute connectivity models.

    Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information on any of the above options or if you have any further questions and we will be glad to assist further. Thank you!
