Telstra’s Transparent Proxying

I am finding Telstras Transparent proxying a nightmare at the moment. I am trying to configure a Windows Azure SQL DB instance I have set up on a trial account I got from TechEd. Azure SQL database security is tied to your IP address. You can click “Manage” from the portal window to add your current IP address to the firewall rules, but then thanks to Telstra’s transparent proxying, when you connect with SQL Server Management Studio, you get a different IP address, and consequently can’t access SQL Server.

Anyone know of a solution to this, short of getting a fixed IP address and opening up the firewall to the world?

  1. What about using SSL? Does Azure support that?
