Create private IPs for private Endpoints

One of the problems of private endpoints is that we cannot reach to them easily from our on-premises applications because their IPs are in the 166. range that is public.

You can create a VIP (virtual ip) inside a VPC/subnet so any traffic to that IP is tunneled to the private endpoint. That way, the private endpoint would be much secure given that only traffic from the VPC will be allowed and also much eaiser to reach because will be using a bring-your-own-ip.
