I have been trying for a long time now to configure a site-to-site VPN connection between Amazon and a Checkpoint R75.20 (previously i tried with Azure) unsuccessfully. I have tried everything and followed lots of manuals, and i managed to have the tunnels up and connected, but im not able to see the private network from any of my instances.
When i try to do a traceroute to the server, it stops at the Virtual Private Gateway, and im sure that the problem is that it doesn't know where to send the packages (the VPG and the Customer Gateway are linked trough the VPN tunnels), so i'm trying to configure the route tables and the static addresses, but it's not working.
Any leads on this? I'm still learning about VPNs, but other examaples i have seen are pretty straightforward, so i cant find too many documentation. The best i had was that when i pinged the server, it returned "Destination Net Unreachable".
Also the configuration of the VPN says something about the "next hop", is that configuration mine or for the firewall admin?
Thank you, and if you need any information please ask.
Configuration right now: 2 Subnets: 1 private, 1 public
1 Virtual Private Gateway
1 Internet Gateway
1 Customer Gateway (pointing to the firewall) (static)
2 Route tables (here i think i can fix everything, but i have 3 items, the local subnet, internet and the VPN subnet, this last one pointing to the Virtual Private Gateway)
1 VPN connection with 2 tunnels (this firewall only admits 1 tunnel per ip range, so i can have only one active at the same time, and in the configuration i can add static addresses, where i have the VPN subnet)
1 Linux Instance in the VPC network, public subnet.
