Launch an Instance¶
Now launch an instance of TNSR:
Navigate to https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/
Click Launch Instance to enter the Launch Instance Wizard
Click the AWS Marketplace heading
Netgatein the search box and press
Find the entry for TNSR and click Select
Click Continue on the information page
Choose an Instance Type, then click Next
The available instance types are those that support ENA network adapters. These include all C5 and M5 instance types. The type of C5 or M5 instance depends on the needs of a given network. For networks with a large number of subnets in the VPC or for networks that expect high throughput, one of the larger instance types is likely to be more appropriate.
For information on bandwidth limits and limits on the number of Network Interfaces and IP addresses for different instance types, see the following links:
In environments where the requirements are unclear, start with c5.xlarge and migrate to a different instance type later as necessary.
Configure Instance Details:
Select the VPC in which to launch the instance
Under Network Interfaces:
Select the Management subnet as the subnet for the eth0 interface
Click the Add Device button
Select the WAN subnet as the subnet for the eth1 interface
Only two Network Interfaces may be added to an instance at launch time. The LAN interface can be added after the instance is launched.
Click Next after completing the choices
Add storage if this instance will require more than the default 10GB disk, then click Next
Add Tags to identify this instance if desired, then click Next
Configure Security Group
Default rules should appear to allow SSH and ICMP. These rules can be used to create a new security group, and to add access for other ports if needed.
We strongly recommend that the allowed Source be limited to a specific address or network that will be used connect to the TNSR instance.
Give the security group a name such as “TNSR management”.
Verify the settings selected in earlier steps, then click Launch
Select an ssh key or create a new key in the popup. Click Launch Instances
