You can now configure your AWS Client VPN endpoint to use either the port 443 or the port 1194, with support for both TCP and UDP transmissions. New and existing endpoints are defaulted to use the port 443. However, you can now modify these endpoints to use the port 1194. If you cannot use the port 443, such as for security reasons, using the port 1194 gives you more flexibility. 

Configuring your port is simple. AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) commands listed in the AWS CLI Command Reference documentation enable you to export Client VPN configurations and create, modify, and describe Client VPN endpoints. This functionality is supported through the AWS CLI, the AWS Management Console, and AWS CloudFormation.

Support for port configuration is available in all of the AWS Regions where AWS Client VPN is available. AWS Client VPN is now available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (San Francisco), CA Central (Montreal), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), EU (London), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Seoul) AWS Regions. For more information, see the AWS VPN product page, as well as the administrator and user documentations.
