Hands-On Lab

In this lab, we'll create an AWS Site-to-Site VPN connection from an AWS VPC used by our organization's main office to a private, remote data center used by a branch office. We will simulate the branch office network via a second AWS VPC, installing and configuring a software-based customer VPN gateway running on an EC2 instance. We'll also create a virtual gateway and configure the Site-to-Site VPN to use a secure IPsec tunnel between sites. We will then test connectivity.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
