    1. From the VPC Dashboard, click NAT gateways in the side navigation bar.

    2. Click the Create NAT gateway button in the top right.

    3. On the Create NAT gateway page, set the following:

      a. (Optional) For Name, enter a name for your NAT gateway.

      b. For Subnet, select the private subnet that you created.

      c. For Connectivity type, select Private.

    4. Click the Create NAT gateway button.
