Question

How do I connect to my new MS Azure Ethereum deployment using geth.exe? ... as a local live node.

That is, I already know I can use "geth.exe attach <my Azure blockchain url>:8545" ...but that's not what I'm looking for.

I want a local node that I can connect to and issue transactions through. 

Best regards,

Michael Herman (Toronto)

Michael,

The solution is designed to be used via the exposed RPC endpoint.  If you want to run a geth node and peer with nodes on the network deployed on Azure, you will need to expose the Ethereum peering port by adding network security group entries and NAT rules on the public load balancer.  This can be done via the Azure portal or API (powershell/CLI) and documentation is available online on how to make these changes for each resource
