Subject RE: Allow all external traffic (any tcp/udp/icmp) to virtual hosts
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 18:46:30 GMT

A Shared Network does not provide Source NAT, so therefore does not act as the Gateway.  When
you created the network, you would have specified a 'Guest Gateway' IP, this IP needs to map
to a Physical Router/Firewall which will provide the Routing/Firewall functionality.

As the 'Default Shared Network' offering only provides DHCP, DNS & User Data, none of
the Firewall, Egress Rules VPN, LB features etc will be available to you.

I'm not using a firewall provider, so my initial question remains.
