Connect to AWS RDS via VPN

Hi All,

 

I have an AWS RDS (Aurora Postgres) that is inside a private network - only accessable via a VPN.

 

How can I let PowerBI see the database both on Desktop & Service? I have the VPN running and the Azure IP's whitelisted but still getting "host not found" errors.

 

Any help is much appreciated, would love to keep using PowerBI (securely).

 

Thanks!

For anyone who reads this - I solved it by using the ODBC connector instead (with sslmode parameter)

 

database=dbname;driver={PostgreSQL Unicode(x64)};port=5432;server=server.eu-w1.compute.server.com;sslmode=require;

Desktop should work on the machine with VPN and IP. And for service use on perm gateway

Thanks - at least I know it should work for desktop so I'm pushing through..

 

However, now I'm receiving:
