    Public Gateway is changing

    With the release of VPC in GA, Public Gateway no longer supports the DHCP server. Public Gateway now focuses on its primary functions such as:

    • Internet access: allowing external traffic to access the internal resources of a Private Network
    • NAT-Gateway: distributing requests to the right IP addresses
    • SSH Bastion: allowing and monitoring SSH connections
    • Local DNS server: customizing resource names on the Private Network

    See our dedicated documentation for full details.

    SSH Bastion is now available on Public Gateway

    The SSH Bastion feature helps you control and secure all your SSH keys for developer and sysadmin access. Moreover, it will help to reduce the attack surface of any malicious actors.
