AWS VPC User Guide

The Netgate® pfSense® Plus Firewall/VPN/Router appliance for Amazon EC2 is a stateful firewall and VPN appliance. In addition to its capabilities as a VPN gateway and firewall for users and offices, it is capable of acting as a firewall to protect instances providing services in Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud or VPC service. This service differs from the classic EC2 service in that it allows for management of instances on private subnets.

This guide will explain how to launch, manage, and use an instance of the appliance to act as a gateway for other instances in a VPC subnet.
