How to Prepare Your Leased Subnet for AWS BYOIP

Follow this easy step-by-step guide and learn how to prepare the subnets you lease via the IPXO Marketplace for AWS BYOIP.

This guide covers only a portion of the AWS BYOIP process. You will learn how to assign Amazon ASN to your leased subnet and add the certificate. The part on how to retrieve the certificate is covered in the official AWS BYOIP guide

Note: For a smoother process, have a certificate ready before doing the reassignment.If required, the certificate can be provided later on by contacting the IPXO support team. 

Step 1:

Log in to IPXO portal , select ‘My Resources (IPAM)’ and click ‘My Leased IPs’ from the dropdown menu:

Step 3: 

  1. Type in your company’s name in the ‘Company name’ field. 
  2. In the ‘Add AS Organization’ you will need to assign two AS numbers of Amazon, this step is necessary since it allows Amazon to advertise your leased range. The two Amazon AS numbers are AS16509 and AS14618. Type them in separately and click ‘Add’ on the right side after each one of them. The result should look like this:

Step 4: 

After you receive a letter from the IPXO team notifying about successful ROA and route object creation, proceed with the BYOIP AWS guide to onboard your leased subnet.
