Set up Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a cloud provider

Set up AWS as a cloud provider in your Conductor to make deploying cloud Airwall Gateways and High-availability standby Conductor easier.

Set up AWS as a cloud provider

  1. In the Conductor, select the gear icon in the upper-right to access the Settings page.
  2. Select the Cloud providers tab and click + Add Cloud Providers
  3. In the Add Cloud Provider dialog, select the check-mark to the right of Amazon Web Services and click Next
  4. Enter your AWS access key, AWS secret key, and Default region

  5. The AWS route injection setting determines how new routes are added to the AWS routing table. The routes are for traffic on your protected overlay network between protected devices and the Airwall Gateway. Here are the recommended settings depending on your deployment details:
    • If you are using a Airwall Relay, set to Disabled.
    • If you want to handle traffic for devices individually, set to Individual traffic.
    • If you want one route to send all traffic to the overlay port on the Airwall Gateway, set to All traffic.
      Note: All traffic is effectively ‘full tunnel’ mode. With Individual traffic, you could add routes that send traffic around the Airwall Gateway.
  6. Click Finish
Your AWS cloud provider is displayed in the Configured Cloud Providers list.
