This Image fails on "Instance Status Checks"

  • By Bala Murugan

We tried this Image ami-5b1b6d2c and its keep failing on 'Instance Status Check', Is there a updated Image? Or Is this product available on Amazon Linux Image instead of Ubuntu?


Easy configuration

Straight forward configuration. It took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. I am using a Linux client and it is working like a charm. So far it has been reliable and stable.


Very easy setup

Extremely easy to setup and configure. Pretty great if you need to evaluate OpenVPN software or if you need an actual VPN server for private usage.


Secure, simple, and light on resources.

OpenVPN Access Server is easy to setup and provides instant security for you and your users. The two-user free test license is a great way to see if it will work for your organization, and OpenVPN makes it easy to bring your own license when you need to grow.

You can be up and running in less than thirty minutes, and it runs on micro instances - perfect for evaluation!


Good enough

Would be better if passiong tag options to enable routing gateway/dns through VPN worked but it is exactly what you'd expect. Clean install of OpenVPN AS and works flawlessly after manual setup.


I like it

I love having my own VPN server on the cloud, And top of all it's free. Amazon did a great job with the marketplace to make it easy for the users.


Got the job done

Install and basic setup was quite easy. However, getting routed connections to work properly with AWS routing proved challenging for an AWS beginner.


VPN Access Server

Working as expected. There were few obstacales with web admin but I found kind of workaround (I didn't want web api to be publicly accessible so I shutdown http server).
Still I would prefer some generic out of the box vpn server where I can use any vpn client...it might be possible here but I haven't explore that option yet.


Exactly what it says on the box

  • By Sandy
  • on 04/25/2015

It "just works" - I had no problems setting up, or running. The only downside to this particular product is that so far as I can tell, to use the VPN requires client side software; there doesn't seem to be a way to run without OpenVPN software on the client device


Good product

Saved us a lot of hassle with setting up a VPN access server. If you are not going to deploy centralized configuration management (OpsWorks/Puppet/Ansible/etc.) and set up OpenVPN yourself, using this AMI is very convenient. The only actual downside is lack of support of pre-shared TLS keys.
