Is there a way to run ROS between two machines but not on the same network ? Basically i want to access my nodes in a Virtual Machine created on Azure.

For future work, i'll run a node there that receives an image from my node here to process and send me the result. Is that possible ? And how can i do that ?

The problem is that i cant ping the machine. I think it is because of Azure firewall but i did not find the solution yet. Any suggestions ?

You should find a forum for Azure users, there's not many Azure users on in the ROS forums.
