Creating a NAT device

This section provides information for creating a Network Address Translation (NAT) device.

In this example, the following steps are completed:

  • The Vyatta AMI instance is configured as a Network Address Translation (NAT) device
  • A new subnet is created within the VPC
  • A routing table is configured so that the subnet can route traffic through the Vyatta NAT device
  • A new instance is launched within the new subnet
  • Remote access to the instance in the new subnet is tested by using SSH.

The following diagram shows the configuration that is created.
