Endpoints allow services running on Windows Azure VM to be accessed remotely. If you create a Azure VM for NAV using one of the templates available on the Azure then all the following endpoints are added by default, which will allow you to access NAV remotely.
Are you also annoyed with al those questions and popups Internet Explorer asks, when you work on a virtual machine? I use a lot of VM’s on Azure, for training, demo’s, tests and lately also to try out the new Developer Experience and Development Tools Preview for Dynamics NAV Tenerife.
While NAV has traditionally mostly been a domestic animal, it’s now getting pushed more and more cloudwards. A large number of partners and customers are considering Azure VMs as their platform of choice as it has many benefits over purchasing and running the whole show in your own basement.
I was in a conversation with Freddy Kristiansen .. the so called “father” of the “Azure Demo VM Image for NAV 2016” (or how do you kids call it these days). If you haven’t heard about that, I strongly advise you to check out for example MVP Steven Renders’ blog on it: http://thinkaboutit.be/2015/10/dynamics-nav-vm-on-microsoft-azure/
This is cool! So useful! And already announced on the NAV Team Blog! And it’s for all MSDN Subscribers .. .
May be first explain what that MSDN-thingy means… . Many partners have MSDN. At least partners that are a little bit serious in what they are doing .. being able to explore the new technical bits and bytes of the products they earn money with .. in our case “Microsoft Products”. Or how Microsoft puts it: “The MSDN subscription gives you the well-known discounted prices and allows you to use it for development, test, and demo purposes, but not for production purposes.”
This Virtual Machine image is designed to allow you to demonstrate the features and functionality of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Beta in a live environment,
utilizing a single PC or laptop computer. Additional guidance and documentation around the VM will be released shortly.
