AWS EC2 VM — Step 4 — Create a VPC Internet Gateway

The next stage for our “property developer” is to build a driveway (Internet Gateway) from the boundaries of the house to the main road, to allow a clear path in and out of the area.

From the VPC dashboard, select Internet Gateways.

Choose, Create Internet Gateway.

Name and create the IG.

Then attach the IG to the VPC created at the beginning.

No go back to the Route Tables menu, and select the RT you created earlier.

Then scroll down and choose the Routes tab and choose Edit Routes.

Type in under destination, and from the target dropdown menu choose Internet Gateway.

Then select the IGW that was created earlier. And choose to save routes.

The next stage before building your house (EC2 VM) will be to build a fence (Security Group) around the area to keep out any unwanted guests.
