Requesting Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Networking Classic – VPN for Dedicated Compute Classic

Not Oracle Cloud at Customer This topic does not apply to Oracle Cloud at Customer.

To set up your VPN connection, you must first request the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Networking Classic – VPN for Dedicated Compute Classic service.
You can request this service either while subscribing to Compute Classic, or later on. To request the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Networking Classic – VPN for Dedicated Compute Classic service, work with your Oracle sales representative to raise a Service Request (SR). You’ll receive a form asking you to provide detailed information. Use this form to provide the following information:
  • A preshared key (PSK) in the 128-bit/SHA1 format.

  • (Optional) A range of 8000 private IP addresses. These should be provided as network prefixes in the CIDR format (for example, n.n/19). When you create instances or restart existing instances, the private IP address of each instance is dynamically assigned from this range of IP addresses. Note that when your Compute Classic account is provisioned, a range of private IP addresses is assigned from the 100.64/10 address range. You can either use this assigned range or specify another range of private IP addresses. An 8000-address block can meet the IP address requirements of up to 2000 instances.

    Note:

    Ensure that the range of IP addresses that you provide doesn’t overlap with the private IP addresses used by other devices on your on-premises network.

    Also check that the private IP addresses of existing Compute Classic instances do not conflict with private IP addresses used by any of your on-premises devices. Such a conflict becomes relevant only when you configure a VPN tunnel and your Compute Classic instances become an extension of you on-premises network.

It can take up to two weeks to process your request. After your SR is processed, Oracle provides you the encoded PSK along with the name and public IP address of the Oracle Cloud VPN gateway. Use these to configure your VPN gateway to connect to the Oracle Cloud VPN gateway. See Configuring Your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Networking Classic – VPN for Dedicated Compute Classic Gateway.
