    Vmware DaaS virtualdesktop to AWS server/database tunnling and how to add DaaS to VPN

    sanathdm Lurker

      If i have servers in AWS , how to connect them without opening 0.0.0.0/0 ports ( i.e allowing DaaS desktop in aws security group)

       

      1)  tunneling to aws servers ?

      2)  accessing RDS,remote database from DaaS without opening all ports( secured RDS). Because DaaS doesnt give ip. So how to add DaaS to aws security group.

          Thank you for your question sanathdm!

           

          1)  We would create an IPsec tunnel between your AWS instance and our DaaS environment, but only include whatever networks/hosts you define to traverse that tunnel.

          2)  We are assuming this “AWS Security Group” was one created as an OU in Active directory. If this is the case, you can manage users/machines in AD just as you would with any other user/machine within the domain – the DaaS desktops will act as an extension of your current desktop environment.


          Can you clarify what you mean by:  “DaaS doesn’t give IP”

          DHCP can be handled by either side.
