Step 6: Configure Security Group

A security group is analogous to a virtual firewall that you can use to control traffic to and from your instances. You need to assign a security group to allow the replication sources access to the Q-Cloud Protect instance in your VPC.

Use Step 6: Configure Security Group from the Launch Instance Wizard to assign a security group to the instance being launched. If you need to configure a new security group to assign to the instance, you can do so from this page, as well.

For information about security group recommendations, see Recommended Security Group Rules.


We recommend using the security group configured for your VPC-private network connection. If you do not know which security group to select, ask your network administrator who configured the network connection.
