How to make a VPN connection to your Rancher Hosted Prime network?

This document (000020562) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


It's normally preferred to connect Rancher Hosted Prime with your network using VPC peering through an AWS transit gateway. This is the most cost-effective, secure, and manageable solution. However, if this is not an option, a VPN connection can be established between your corporate network and Rancher Hosted Prime through an IPSec VPN tunnel. The following steps are required to set this up:

  1. Provide the Rancher Hosted Prime team with the following information about your VPN device:
    1. Public IP address for your VPN endpoint
    2. Routing option: a) static (no BGP support) or b) dynamic (BGP support)
    3. BGP ASN (only if dynamic routing)
    4. VPN device make and model used on-premise that we'll be connecting to.
  2. The Rancher Hosted Prime team will configure the VPN connection and provide configuration information based on the VPN device
  3. Customer will configure their VPN device to connect to Rancher Hosted Prime's network.
