This week my post is a few days later, as my post is an extension of my session at the Nordic Virtual Summit Second Edition. At the virtual summit I did a session about Getting access to on-premises resources with Microsoft Tunnel. During that session I shared the information around the architecture of Microsoft Tunnel and I zoomed in on getting up-and-running with Microsoft Tunnel and getting insight in Microsoft Tunnel. This post will provide a quick summary of that session about the different important components of Microsoft Tunnel and how to get connected to Microsoft Tunnel. Most of that information will be summarized in tables and slides. The slides (PDF) of that session are available for download here.
Main components of Microsoft Tunnel
The Microsoft Tunnel contains a few components that together make the complete solution. The table below (in Figure 1) summarizes those different components and provides a short summary about the usage of that component.
Architecture of Microsoft Tunnel
The architecture of the Microsoft Tunnel is important for understanding the traffic flows. The picture below (in Figure 2) provides an overview of that architecture. It also shows the main interactions and flows that are important for the Microsoft Tunnel.

4 thoughts on “Microsoft Tunnel Gateway: A quick overview”
is Microsoft tunnel only for AAD join devices and should not be used for AD joined devices?
At this moment Microsoft Tunnel is iOS/iPadOS and Android only.
This was a great session mate! Even learned a new thing, the CA policy and script. Thanks for sharing en goed bezig!
Thanks you Rkast!
