Why does Windows Azure Western Europe have U.S IP Address?

Like the question says, I'm really having a problem where, although I've signed up for a Western Europe Windows Azure VM, whenever I access a site or service from this server I'm getting assigned a U.S IP Address.

This is really problematic because those services require my IP to be in Europe. Anyone else have this issue and know how I can change the IP somehow?

jcyin, the answer posted in the stackoverflow post is the correct answer.  All Azure IP addresses are registered in the US.

But what if the service I'm trying to access requires a EU based IP? How do I achieve this with a Western Europe Azure VM?

All azure IP addresses are registered in the US, but the service you are trying to access requires an EU based IP, from my experience, I recommend you to contact the service support team. If any further issue, welcome to post again.

Best Regards

I am in the exact same situation as I cannot use some applications because of the way the IPs are detected.

My subscription does not allow me to create a support ticket, what can I do ? Thank you. Without this functionnality my subscription to Azure is useless :(

You should raise a request to Azure Billing & Support Team for resolve this issue since all the Azure IP address are registered in the US.
