About this Hands-on Lab

Cloud VPN allows you to connecting an on-premises network (or other external network) to a Google Cloud VPC over a secure IPSec connection for secure internal network (RFC1918) access. We will practice using the Cloud VPN service to connect two separate VPC networks to communicate over an internal IP address using static routes.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create Static IP Addresses for VPN Gateways

Create static IP address in both the us-central1 and us-east1 regions name ‘gateway-address-1’ and ‘gateway-address-2’, respectively.

Create the VPN Gateways and Tunnels

Create two VPN gateways named ‘vpn-gateway-1’ for VPC ‘network-1’, and ‘vpn-gateway-2’ for VPC ‘network-2’.
Also create a tunnel in each gateway connecting to the other network’s gateway.

Note: When creating the VPNs for this lab, use theClassic VPN option.

Additional Resources

Google Cloud VPN allows us to securely connect an external on-premises (or other external) network to a Google Cloud VPC network over a secure IPSec encrypted connection. In this lab, we will create a VPN connection between two different VPC networks, which have already been created for you. Both networks have a single custom mode subnet and a server in each subnet.

Note: When creating the VPNs for this lab, use theClassic VPN option.
