I was wondering if anyone has had any success in setting up a Helix Core / P4 Server on an Azure Windows Server VM? I'm in the middle of trying to set this up for my team but unfortunately I have little experience in server admin or setup.

I believe I have the server set up correctly, but whenever I attempt to have P4V connect from another machine, I'm seeing the following error:
Connect to server failed; check $P4PORT.
TCP connect to <machineDNSLabel>.westus2.cloudapp.azure.com:1666 failed.
No such host is known.

I suspect it's actually a DNS or Firewall issue rather than an actual issue with the setup of the P4 server, but all the Video Samples I've found on the Perforce website tend to use localhost for the examples as opposed to different machines.

Was just hoping someone here may have had some experience doing a similar setup and would be willing to share their insight.
