4. Wait for 30 seconds, we shall be able to see the VPN tunnel is up in VPN and Remote Access >> Connection Management page. After VPN is up, Vigor Router will route packets to the VPN tunnel, however, it may not receive the reply because AWS blocks the VPN packets by its default policy. You will need to update your AWS’s routing table to include Vigor Router’s LAN network or add/update a security group to pass the traffic to the tunnel. For this step, please contact AWS
