How do I create a VPN connection with my own PSK values and inside tunnel IP addresses?

Last updated: 2020-03-04

I want to create a VPN connection with my own pre-shared key (PSK) value and inside tunnel IP addresses. How can I do this?

Resolution

Before you begin, consider the following:

You can modify tunnel options after you create a Site-to-Site VPN connection.

You can't configure tunnel options for an AWS Classic VPN connection. For more information, see How do I migrate from an AWS Classic VPN to a new AWS VPN?

To create a VPN connection with your own PSK value and inside tunnel IP addresses:

  1. Open the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) console.
  2. Choose Site-to-Site VPN connections from the navigation pane.
  3. Choose Create VPN Connection.
  4. Under Tunnel Options, populate the following with your custom PSK value and inside tunnel IP addresses:
    Inside IP CIDR for Tunnel 1
    Pre-Shared Key for Tunnel 1
    Inside IP CIDR for Tunnel 2
    Pre-shared key for Tunnel 2
  5. Choose Create VPN Connection.
