A local peering gateway (LPG) is an object on a VCN that lets that VCN peer with another VCN in the same region. Peering means that the two VCNs can communicate using private IP addresses, but without the traffic traversing the internet or routing through your on-premises network. For more information, see VCN Peering.

To use any of the API operations, you must be authorized in an IAM policy. If you’re not authorized, talk to an administrator. If you’re an administrator who needs to write policies to give users access, see Getting Started with Policies.
