Setting up a Windows Server in the protected network
- In the AWS management console, select EC2. Select Launch Instance, then select the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 that applies to your environment. You will use this to test connectivity with remote desktop access.
- In the Configure Instance Details step, in the Network field, select the FortiGate-VM's VPC. In the Subnet field, select the private subnet.
- In the Configure Security Group step, configure a security group for the Windows server so that it allows Internet access. In this example, we use Remote Desktop TCP port 3389, and other ports are optional. Select Review and Launch.
- Select a key pair, select the acknowledgment checkbox, and select Launch Instances.
