Unable to connect aws instance from internet

Jump to solution

Hi,

This is for AWS:

I am unable to connect to ec2 instances from Internet,which are behind vSec firewall. I have given elastic IP to instance and on firewall natted the instance object with eslactic IP.

I do not see the traffic on firewall itself. Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

Did you put the elastic IP on the vSEC instance or the instance you're trying to protect?

The packet flow must be: Internet > vSEC Gateway > EC2 instance.

Which means the elastic IP must be associated with a secondary interface on the vSEC instance.

Refer to the R77.30 vSEC for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Getting Started Guide​ for the correct steps.

Thanks a lot Dameon.

I am able to access now. I assigned a private ip to external interface, associated that IP with elastic IP and then wrote one NAT rule for destination.

That was really helpful
