I'd be interested to know what kinds of ELBs are officially supported by Check Point in AWS and what, if any, caveats that are applied to each kind.
As part of an ongoing project, I am required to route inbound traffic to peered VPCs.
Classic and Network ELBs does not support this, as it requires targets to be instances in the same VPC.
The Application ELB does:
- "Application Load Balancers can now distribute traffic to AWS resources using their IP addresses as targets in addition to the instance IDs. You can also load balance to resources outside the VPC hosting the load balancer using their IP addresses as targets. This includes resources in peered VPCs, EC2-Classic, and on-premises locations reachable over AWS Direct Connect or a VPN connection."
