I'm trying to get our local Sonicwall NSA 2600 to connect to a AWS VPN, within a VPC. I have the IKE portion working and AWS shows the two pipes are connected

The BGP routes show as up in the router

(config-routing)# show routing bgp summary
BGP router identifier 192.168.1.3, local AS number 65000
BGP table version is 8737
2 BGP AS-PATH entries
0 BGP community entries

Neighbor        V    AS MsgRcvd MsgSent   TblVer  InQ OutQ Up/Down  State/PfxRcd
169.254.45.245  4  7224   51909   63298     8736    0    0 5d20h55m        1
169.254.46.161  4  7224   52390   63791     8736    0    0 5d20h55m        1

Total number of neighbors 2

What's baffling is that it appears that everything appears to be there. But attempting to get anything to route to the 174.0.0.0/16 block doesn't work (I know it's a public block but I can't change it at present)

(config-routing)# show routing nsm database

C    *> 169.254.45.244/30 is directly connected, T2
C    *> 169.254.45.247/32 is directly connected, T2
C    *> 169.254.46.160/30 is directly connected, T1
C    *> 169.254.46.163/32 is directly connected, T1
B    *> 174.0.0.0/16 [20/100] via 169.254.46.161, T1, 5d20h57m
C    *> 192.168.1.0/24 is directly connected, X0

I've never dealt with BGP so I'm at a complete loss how to debug it further, or determine how to get it to send into or out of the VPC. I cannot get pings, RDC or SSH to work through the internal IPs.

Adding the route table, as obtained from my PC

There is a route in the Sonicwall routing

I played with this some and got the BGP routes listed correctly, but still no luck on getting traffic to flow

  • Are you using those link-local addresses based on the tutorial or from your actual configuration? I've never used AWS but that seems strange. Can you ping the BGP neighbors?

  • what is your route for 169.254.46.161 in the routing table?

  • I cannot ping the BGP neighbors. The addressing was provided directly by AWS itself

    It's hard to help you if you just keep spoon-feeding us information. Please post your router configs and the routing table from both sides. From what you've posted so far, I don't see a route from the VPC back to you.
