Access List and AWS RDS

Post by superduper » Sat Oct 27, 2018 2:09 pm

Hi, I have Softether Server VPN installed and wants to allow only MYSQL traffic to a AWS RDS instance. Amazon recommends to use DNS instead of IP because the IP could change (RDS is multi zoned) when failover is trigged. Is there a way to allow this MYSQL traffic per DNS instead of IP ? In Softether´s Access List you only can add IP as dest (or source) but not DNS name... ? Is there a way to use access list, policy (or something else) to solve my problem ?

It's difficult to resolve DNS for each packet.
So, I recommend updating AccsessList periodically.
