I have an AWS site that’s slowly growing in size and the option of fitting scans into a window is no longer viable. I was told the other day in a support session that AWS no longer requires the use of the “pre-authorized” scan engine, and that I can spin up my own Linux instances, install the engine, and establish an engine pool to get more overall scan bandwidth.
The problem I’m facing is that I can’t get an engine to pair (in either direction) out of AWS to save my life. I’m wondering if AWS is actually blocking 40815/out and 40814/in from everything but an authorized AMI so they can somehow force the use of it. Conspiracy, perhaps, but I wouldn’t put it past them.
Wondering if anyone has been able to pair/use an engine that’s not the pre-auth AMI?
