Hands-On Lab

In this hands-on lab, we will be presented with a custom VPC that has four instances spread across three subnets with zero firewall rules created. We will configure two different firewall rules: one to allow SSH access to all instances on the network, and another one using specific network tags to only allow ICMP (ping) access to one instance, and only from a specific subnet. This will demonstrate using both wide-scope and narrow-scope firewall rules.

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.
