    Configuration Description
    Region

    If you want to use IPsec-VPN to connect a VPC to a local data center or other VPCs, make sure that the VPN Gateway and the VPC are in the same region.

    VPC Select the VPC associated with the VPN Gateway.
    Bandwidth Select the Internet bandwidth of the VPN Gateway. The bandwidth specification is the Internet bandwidth of the VPN gateway.
    IPsec-VPN

    Enable IPsec-VPN.

    With IPsec-VPN enabled, you can create a site-to-site connection over the IPsec tunnel to connect a local data center to a VPC, or connect two VPCs.
