Azure Network Security Rules issue

I have set up a network security group in my Azure portal in order to control which IP Addresses can access
my Azure Virtual Machine (Windows 2016). Several inbound and outbound security rules were automatically
set up without me doing anything. I only added one rule (myInboundRule1), which is marked by a red arrow.
I only want people at IP addresses that I specify to access the system. Will any of the other rules in the list override this.

Michael B. SmithManaging ConsultantCommented:
Yes. Both the HTTP and the RDP rule will override it. But only for the ports mentioned (80 for HTTP and 3389 for RDP).

The AzureVnetInBound and AzureLoadBalancerInBound are required in case you add other VMs to your virtual network. They have no impact if you have no other VMs.

Thanks. What should I do? Delete the two you mentioned?
Michael B. SmithManaging ConsultantCommented:
Well, if you don't use port 80, you can certainly delete the HTTP rule.

But if you delete the RDP rule, how do you expect to administer the VM?
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

My main aim is to try and expose the VM to 5 IP addresses only. Is that possible?
Michael B. SmithManaging ConsultantCommented:
Sure, just edit the rules (NOT the ones starting 65...) to have a list of those 5 IP addresses.
