New VPN Connection


Due to RightScale Legacy Platform deprecation, this section covering Amazon Web Services Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) is no longer valid. Please see the Network Manager section for current information on creating and managing AWS VPCs.


To create a new VPN connection between your AWS VPC and your private corporate network.


Your VPN connection requires that the following network endpoints are already exist:

  • Customer Gateway
  • VPN Gateway

When Customer and VPN Gateways are created in EC2 a unique ID is issued for each.  When you create the VPN Connection from the Dashboard UI the unique ID's are automatically provided for you in a drop down menu.  (Making the steps to create your connection even easier.)


Step 1:  Navigation

  • Navigate to Clouds -> AWS US/EU -> VPCs
  • Select the Gateways tab

Step 2:  Provide VPN Connection information

  • Select the New VPN Connection action button
  • Provide the following information
    • Type - The type of VPN network connection.  (Although there is no default value, only IPsec is currently supported so "ipsec.1" is prepopulated for you.)
    • Customer gateway id - Select the correct Customer Gateway ID from the drop down menu
    • VPN gateway id - Select the correct VPN Gateway ID from the drop down menu

Step 3:  Save your configuration
