    [This step is available if you have selected the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option at the Restore Mode step of the wizard.]

    At the Network step of the wizard, select Amazon VPCs, subnets and security groups to which restored EC2 instances will be connected:

    1. In the Virtual private cloud list, select the necessary EC2 instances and click Customize.
    2. From the Amazon VPC drop-down list, select an Amazon VPC where the restored EC2 instances will be launched.

    For an Amazon VPC to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with VPCs and subnets section in the AWS documentation.

    1. From the Subnet drop-down list, select a subnet where the restored EC2 instances will reside.

    For a subnet to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with VPCs and subnets section in the AWS documentation.

    1. From the Security group drop-down list, select a security group that will be associated with the restored instances.

    For a security group to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with security groups section in the AWS documentation.

    1. From the Public access drop-down list, select one of the following options:
    • Select Do not assign if you want the selected instances to have only private IP addresses — that is, the instances will be accessible only within the selected VPC.
    • Select Assign if you want the instances to have public IP addresses in addition to private IP addresses — that is, the instances will be accessible from the internet.

    Note

    To allow public access to an EC2 instance, the security group of the instance must allow public access.
