# Trying to creat a VPN connection between AWS VPC and my Fedora 26 workstation using Openswan

Hi, I am trying to establish a VPN connection between my local home network and a VPC on AWS cloud My previous experiences with the subject the connection was always between two AWS VPCs on two different accounts & 2 different regions and the setup was really straight forward . Now I am trying to use my Fedora 26 (Plasma spin) but I can't find the right files were I used to! I need to open /etc/sysctl.conf and ensure that its values match the following:

   net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 0
net.ipv4.conf.default.accept_source_route = 0


And I also have to edit /etc/ipsec by un-commenting :

#include /etc/ipsec.d/*.conf


But when I opened sysctl.conf all I found was an auto generated note telling me to edit files in other locations

#sysctl settings are defined through files in
# /usr/lib/sysctl.d/, /run/sysctl.d/, and /etc/sysctl.d/.
#
# Vendors settings live in /usr/lib/sysctl.d/.
# To override a whole file, create a new file with the same in
# /etc/sysctl.d/ and put new settings there. To override
# only specific settings, add a file with a lexically later
# name in /etc/sysctl.d/ and put new settings there.
