Using this service with AWS

Post by cloudlady911 » Tue Mar 02, 2021 5:46 pm

All my servers in in AWS. I have setup the service and ran the cloudformation to create my Connector.
The instructions say to add the connector security group to all the hosts I want to allow access to. (I think I have to add the security group to an existing security group. Not directly to the host.

Lets say I have two hosts. FTP1 (running Ubuntu) and Windows1. I have testuser1 and testuser2. I have an Access Groups FTP and Windows. I want testuser1 to have access to only port 22 on FTP1 and RDP port on Windows1. Testuser2 should have access to port 22 on FTP1 only.

Questions:
1. Do I need to add the FTP1 and Windows1 hosts in the Hosts section? If so, how does OpenVPN know where this server is exactly?
2. How do I route traffic to these hosts? IP addresses might change. I want the users to be able to use their dns names. i.e. ftp1.domain.com and windows1.domain.com.
3. My current vpn adds the dns server for route53 to my local network when I connect. its 10.30.0.2. I plan to have two VPC connected. The other DNS server will be 10.30.0.2. How do I manage this with OpenVPN Cloud?

Hi There,

I can see a related ticket for this on our ticketing system (ticket #: OBM-648-53521) and I think it is already been being worked on.
Please continue the communication on that ticket. Thank you!
