In the last post I explained why you might want to route your traffic through AWS.

In this post I’m going to set up the VPC and VPC flow logs manually for use in that architecture.

If you want to automate creation of a VPC and Flow Logs and add some governance to ensure they are always set up correctly I wrote about that in other posts:

Click Create VPC.
