Learn about the job of route tables and how they control packet flow.
- [Instructor] When we're creating subnets at AWS, … behind the scenes a route table is automatically added … to every subnet that's created … allowing local routing throughout the VPC. … Any traffic patterns, egress, ingress, … going out to the internet private traffic … must be defined with a route table. … If a route table isn't designed properly, … your traffic is not leaving the subnet. … Now each subnet can only be associated … with just one route table … and that route table can have multiple routes … but it's up to you to assign them. … Typically the default route table assigned to a new subnet … hosted within a VPC is called the main route table. … It's probably the safest one to assign to a subnet … because it only allows local routing. … If I wanted a public subnet … to be able to route to the internet gateway, … well then I would create a public route table. … Note, I have the local designation for routing … but I've also got a route to the internet gateway 0.0.0.0/0 … meaning I don't know where the destination is …
