Enabling internet access to non-routable subnets using NAT Gateways on AWS

Posted: April 30, 2017 in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Linux

In this post we enabled “private” network access to the internet using NAT AWS instance,

in this post we’ll do the same using NAT Gateway

Services-VPN-NAT Gateways-Create NAT Gateways



Select “public” subnet (subnet with internet access),choose existing or create new Elastic IP Allocation (An Elastic IP address is a public IPv4 address, which is reachable from the Internet)



Click Edit Route Tables


As in example in previous post, select Route table without subnet association (default routing table)-routes-edit-as destination set local select NAT Gateway








As in previous post’s example, SSH from internet-facing VM to VM on private subnet and try to install package/update VM
