Well you’ve just illustrated why one wouldn’t need OpenVPN on AWS.Look dude, let's end this pointless discussion. Not everyone uses your use cases. This doesn't suit your needs? No worries, don't use it, but quit trolling.
And while you're at it, please let Amazon know they're wasting their time marketing this crap when it's not necessary LMAO
AWS Virtual Private Network (AWS VPN) lets you establish a secure and private encrypted tunnel from your network or device to the AWS global network. AWS VPN is comprised of two services: AWS Site-to-Site VPN and AWS Client VPN.aws.amazon.com
But site-2-site VPNs make perfect common sense and it makes perfect sense for Amazon to provide the client service for people who still believe in working that way.
The only reason I actually object to this very scenario is because I’m currently dealing with exactly this setup of OpenVPN inside an AWS configuration and I keep asking the question why and nobody provides decent answers which is why I asked the same questions here.
But let’s leave it at that.
