One-time access

If you need to establish one-time or temporary access to your Orka cluster from a single virtual machine hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS), you can connect via VPN from the AWS machine to your Orka cluster.

VPN tunnel

If you need to connect an entire Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to your Orka cluster through a stable, persistent connection, you need to establish an IPsec site-to-site VPN between the two clouds (VPN tunnel):

  1. Create a Site-to-Site VPN for your Amazon VPC.
  2. Download and adjust the AWS-specific configuration file for the VPN.
  3. Apply the configuration to your Cisco ASAv device using the Cisco ASDM-IDM.
