AWS Transit Gateway Connect Support

This guide walks you through the process of connecting a FusionHub to an AWS Transit Gateway Connect. Here is the network we’ll be setting up:

This guide assumes you have already established the VPCs. For easier viewing, click any image to see a full-sized version.

1) Create Transit Gateway and Attachments

Go to the AWS Console, navigate to VPC > TRANSIT GATEWAYS > Transit Gateway and click Create Transit Gateway

Name and configure your Transit Gateway, and then click Create Transit Gateway.

Then navigate to “TRANSIT GATEWAYS > Transit Gateway Attachments” and click Create Transit Gateway Attachment.

The Create Transit Gateway Attachment page will appear. From the Transit Gateway ID dropdown menu, select your new Transit Gateway. For the Attachment type, select VPC. Your VPCs will appear under VPC ID.

Under VPC Attachment > VPC ID, select the IDs of each VPC and select the subnets for each of them to operate in.

2) Connect the Transit Gateway to the FusionHub VPC

Next, create another Transit Gateway Attachment, this time with Connect as the attachment type. For the Transport Attachment ID, set it to vpc-FusionHub.

Return to TRANSIT GATEWAY > Transit Gateway Attachments, select the Connect type attachment you have just created, and on the table below, navigate to the Connect peers tab, and then click Create Connect peer

The Create Connect peer page will pop up with some info already filled. Enter the remaining information.

3) Set Up FusionHub, GRE Tunnel, and BGP

Set up the FusionHub instance inside the FusionHub VPC.

Afterwards, head into the FusionHub, apply the FusionHub license and update the firmware. Then set up the GRE Tunnel by navigating to Network > GRE Tunnel, and clicking New Profile

Finally, set up GBP by navigating to Network > BGP, and clicking New Profile

To verify the routes to the other AWS VPC, navigate to Status > BGP
