Subject RE: Site to Site and RA VPN?
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 11:32:02 GMT

Sounds like a nice workaround.

I assume you install a VPN appliance in each Tier?
Have you had any problems with the VPNs traversing the different Tiers and effectively breaking
the VPC isolation model?
Have you created a 'template' for the StrongSwan VM or do you need to install  it for each

FYI User VPN is coming to VPCs, but it's not there yet

Hi Steve,

We use CentOS with StrongSwan VPN Server installed.  You need to assign a extra WAN IP and
enable static nat to the VPN Server. This gives us Site to site VPN, Remote access VPN, port
forwarding etc.  We are using CS 4.02

It has been reliable

In CS 4.2 remote access VPN's are not supported inside a VPC; likewise site to site is not
supported in a non VPC isolated network. (Advanced Zone).  What is the best practice/suggestion
if both are required? A small Linux instance inside the VPC to serve as a vpn endpoint for
the remote users?  I am looking for what has worked well for others in this situation.
