1 Solution Overview

This document describes how to set up VPN access from a Corente Services Gateway in your data center to Compute Classic instances that are attached to an IP network defined by you in a multitenant Compute Classic site.



The following other VPN solutions are available for multitenant sites:

Understanding the Architecture and Key Components of the Solution

The following figure provides an overview of the solution:
Solution Overview diagram

The following are the key components of this solution:

  • App Net Manager Service Portal: App Net Manager is a secure web portal that you use to create, configure, modify, delete, and monitor the components of your Corente-powered network. You can create, configure, modify, delete, and monitor the components of your Corente-powered network using the Compute Classic web console as well.

  • Corente Services Gateway: Corente Services Gateway serves as a proxy that facilitates secure access and data transfer in the VPN solution.

    The solution consists of two separate installations of Corente Services Gateway:

    • The first gateway (referred to as on-premises gateway) is installed on a host in your on-premises data center. The gateway may be run as a guest VM on your physical host.

      Note that you should set up the on-premises gateway manually on a host with Internet access in your data center. One edge of this on-premises gateway connects to the Internet to establish connectivity with the Corente Services Gateway (the first one) installed in Oracle Cloud and the other edge of the on-premises gateway communicates with hosts or virtual machines of your users and administrators in your private network.

      You should manually set routes in your on-premises environment to direct packets with Oracle Cloud tunnel subnets to the Corente Services Gateway installed in your data center.

    • The second gateway (referred to as cloud gateway) is installed on an Compute Classic instance running in Oracle Cloud.
