I created a database in azure and assigned a new server to it. I entered my ip address in the firewall and tried to connect to the server in Sql Server Management Studio but no success. I tried to ping the FQDN of the server server.database.windows.net but no success. I searched the problem and I found that the server cannot be pinged click here. Can you please help me in connecting to the SQL server or database from SSMS on my machine? Thanks

The problem was with our company firewall. The port 1433 was blocked on the firewall. After removing the outgoing and incoming restrictions on firewall the SMSS started working.
