There are multiple ways to connect to VM resides in Azure cloud, you can connect through RDP (Remote Desktop Protocal), but why to install Desktop in Linux machine and creating a RDP connection when you have just have to work in Terminal?
To work with commands only you can use many SSH clients like PuTTY, KiTTY, Xshell 5 and Git Bash etc, in this tutorial I’ll be using Git Bash, go ahead and install – if you haven’t already – I’ll wait here.
For a connection, you need three things from Azure portal
Now open Git Bash and enter ssh connection command – ssh username@DNSLabel – now enter user’s password, you’ll connected to VM.
