Configuring the Route Table of the AWS Router

To take advantage of the advanced services provided by CloudEOS and vEOS, configure the route table of the AWS Router so that traffic is forwarded from the AWS Router to CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances. This task involves logging into the AWS Router and modifying route table entries for the CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances to which you want traffic forwarded.

Complete these steps to configure the route table of the AWS router.

  1. Log in to the AWS Router.
  2. Select the network interface that is attached to a CloudEOS and vEOS Router instance.
  3. Obtain the Subnet ID and the route table ID that corresponds to the subnet in which the CloudEOS and vEOS Router instance resides.
    Example:
    Subnet ID (subnet-1c68b744).
    Route table ID (rtb-934cf9f7).
  4. Edit the route table entry so that it points to the corresponding interface of the CloudEOS and vEOS Router in that subnet.
    Example
    To reach any subnet other than 10.2.0.0/24, enter the Target to be the network interface ID of the locally connected interface of the CloudEOS and vEOS Router.
  5. (Optional) Repeat steps 2 through 4 to modify route table entries for additional CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances.

Configure the AWS CloudWatch Logs Agent (see Configuring the AWS CloudWatch Logs Agent). Configuring the Agent ensures that the CloudEOS and vEOS Router logs publish to AWS.
