Heya, @osuntoyinbomicheal

If you can share more details we can try to come with a solution. My first suggestion here will be to use a virtual private network and attach a VPN gateway to it. However, you’ve mentioned that our team explained that our query is not doable at the moment, so I would like to have the full picture here and know which is the end goal.

A VPN gateway can be attached to a private network to establish a site-to-site VPN tunnel. With a VPN gateway, machines, devices, and third-party sites can communicate. To access the gateway, authentication and authorization is required. Strict rules are applied in order to protect the data transmitted as well maintaining a secure connection.
