In this lab, I provision an isolated section of AWS where I can launch resources in a virtual network
I verified the regions supported and Sydney is supported.
Create an Amazon VPC
First I had to go into the VPC service and run the VPC Wizard
I choose the VPC with a Single Public Subnet
I then had to create my VPC
Now to check the internet gateways and the route tables.
Setting up a Security Group
Now I need to set up Security Groups that act as a virtual firewall.
Add rules to the WebServerSG Security Group
Now I have to add protocols to my new security group, RDP is Remote Desktop Protocol. Best practice is not to use 0.0.0.0/0 as a source but for this demo it’s okay.
I then removed all outbound rules.
Launching an Amazon EC2 instance
I now have to create an Instance using the groups I made before
Attaching an Internet Gateway to your VPC
Now I need to attach an Internet Gateway to my VPC
Now I need to attach these to my web server
Deleting your Amazon VPC
Now after the creation and set up process it’s time to bring it all down.
First I remove the instance
Now I remove the VPC
And that is VPC!
I did not encounter issues with this lab. I am familiar with creating instances so this was pretty straight forward.
