Prerequisites for Configuring the CloudBridge Connector Tunnel

Jan 30, 2014
Before setting up a CloudBridge connector tunnel between AWS Cloud and a CloudBridge appliance configured for one-arm mode in the data center, verify that the following tasks have been completed:
  1. Make sure that the CloudBridge appliance in the datacenter is set up correctly. For more information on deploying a CloudBridge appliance in one-arm mode that uses WCCP/Virtual Inline protocol, see and .
  2. Install, configure, and launch a NetScaler virtual appliance (VPX instance) on AWS cloud. For more information, see Installing NetScaler VPX on AWS.
  3. Install, configure, and launch an instance of CloudBridge virtual appliance (VPX) on AWS cloud. For more information, see .
  4. On AWS, bind the CloudBridge VPX instance on AWS to a load balancing virtual server in the NetScaler VPX instance on AWS. This binding is required for sending traffic through the CloudBridge VPX instances, to achieve WAN optimization over the CloudBridge Connector tunnel.

    To create a load balancing virtual server by using the command line interface

    At the command prompt, type:

    • enable ns mode l2
    • add lb vserver <cbvpxonaws_vs_name> ANY * * -l2Conn ON -m MAC

    To add the CloudBridge VPX instance on AWS as a service and bind it to the load balancing virtual server by using the command line interface

    At the command prompt, type:

    • add service < cbvpxonaws_service_name> <cbvpxonaws_IP> ANY * -cltTimeout 14400 -svrTimeout 14400
    • bind lb vserver <cbvpxonaws_vs_name> <cbvpxonaws_service_name>
