Allowing Amazon web services

  • Hello,

    I have been using pfSense for a while now at home and at work and think it's excellent. My company has a data processing centre in India which runs 24/7. I have set up firewall rules to block all and allow only what is required for the data processing. We have recently moved some of the required services to AWS and now we are having an issue with the AWS load balancers which seem to balance across multiple IP blocks. They will not publish the details of these blocks so I have been unable to add the necessary IPs to the allowed alias.

    All of our services use https so Squidguard isn't really an option. I need to keep it simple. It's just a single URL that needs to be allowed. Is there some way to use DNS forwarder to point the URL at the pfSense box locally and have it service the request? Or is there another more straight forward way?

    Thanks in advance.
