Disclaimer: I am an AWS employee. This blogpost is my own configuration and does not reflect a supported configuration for AWS VPC VPN. This *should* work for you, but YMMV.

I've been testing a configuration for ipsec between an OpenBSD-5.6 (STABLE) machine and AWS VPC VGW.

home network topology

Posted 02-15-2015 at 12:54 PM by WestCoastSunset

Because of additions to the home network, I have been recently thinking of expanding the home network using a wifi extender of some sort. Of course before I do anything I want to consider what would accomplish my goals with the least amount of money invested. This is what we have:
