Virtual Networking Quickstart

To make it easier to set up a virtual cloud network (VCN) and connect to it, the Console has the following wizards that walk you through network setup.

VCN with Internet Connectivity

What this wizard does:

  • Creates a VCN.
  • Creates an internet gateway, NAT gateway, and service gateway for the VCN.
  • Creates a regional public subnet with routing to the internet gateway. Instances in a public subnet may optionally have public IP addresses.
  • Creates a regional private subnet with routing to the NAT gateway and service gateway (and therefore the Oracle Services Network). Instances in a private subnet cannot have public IP addresses.
  • Sets up basic security list rules for the two subnets, including SSH access.

Notice that this wizard does not support the creation of a VCN with IPv6 addresses. Also be aware that IPv6 addressing is currently supported only in the US Government Cloud. See For All US Government Cloud Customers.

Where to access this wizard:

Option 1:

  1. In the Console, click the Oracle Cloud icon at the top of the page to go to the Console home page.

    The page has a Quick Actions section to take you directly to common tasks.

  2. Click the quick action for Networking: Set up a network with a wizard.
  3. Select VCN with Internet Connectivity, and then click Start Workflow.

Option 2:

  1. Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Networking and click Virtual Cloud Networks.
  2. Click Networking Quickstart.
  3. Select VCN with Internet Connectivity, and then click Start Workflow.

VCN with VPN Connect and Internet Connectivity

What this wizard does:

  • Creates a VCN.
  • Creates an internet gateway for the VCN.
  • Creates a regional public subnet with access to the internet gateway. Instances in a public subnet may optionally have public IP addresses.
  • Sets up basic security list rules for the subnet, including SSH access.
  • Sets up all the Networking service resources required for a VPN Connect between the VCN and your on-premises network.

Notice that this wizard does not support the creation of a VCN with IPv6 addresses. Also be aware that IPv6 addressing is currently supported only in the Government Cloud. See For All US Government Cloud Customers.

Note

For the IPSec connection to work, your network engineer must also configure the customer-premises equipment (CPE) in your edge network.
