comment High availability and AWS VPN
Yes indeed - I am using the AWS native VPN service. I would be very surprised if traffic from the VPN gateway was not subject to the VPC routing rules. Since the VPG is bound to the VPC, shouldn't traffic from it be subject to the same routing rules?

comment High availability and AWS VPN
Understood, however I can't use a CNAME record, precisely because it will return an RFC1918 ip address. The client application (located in the corporate network) would resolve such a DNS record to the correct RFC1918 ip address (the private ip of the target machine within the AWS network). Unfortunately, the big corporate will not add the static route required on their end to route the request over the VPN because that would require them to reserve that RFC1918 ip address for the service I am hosting. They will only set up such a static route on their end for a non RFC1918 ip address.

Instance recovery looks like an interesting fall-back position though, thanks :-)

The Virtual Private Gateway offered by Amazon is considered a highly available system - Amazon manage and deal with any failures. I agree that failure of HA is unlikely, but just trying to do due diligence :-)

No, NATing on my side. The client rends a request to a public IP I provide, the client's network routes this request over the VPN, then I NAT this request to an internal IP on my private subnet :-) The Amazon VPG would give me highly available VPN, but my challenge is providing a highly available route to the web service for requests that arrived over that VPN. The web service is available on a cluster of several machines on my end of the link and I would like to load balance requests across this cluster. Unfortunately I can't find a way to route requests arriving over the VPN to an ELB.

The client is using a Cisco ASA 5515. I am trying to use the AWS VPN endpoint.

comment SVN checkout intermittently skips files but reports success
I had the same thought. No, the files missed are random and include files committed many months ago. It is usually only one or two files at a time. Perhaps I will update my workaround to maintain a log of skipped files so that I can identify any patterns more easily.
