I have discovered a dilemma with our azure SQL database. Under firewall settings I am supposed to specify IP addresses that can access the database. We are using a VB6 app, which is not central to any specific location. Is it OK to open up the firewall so that various locations can access it? Or is this too much of a security risk? Has anyone ever run into this problem?
