Hi, I’m new to DO. Our company is mounting its applications on this platform with Kubernetes and we have a problem communicating with a database on an external network because this other network must give permissions to a static IP for requests. I have been looking for and I understand that this is achieved with NAT, specifically implement this manual https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/vpc/resources/droplet-as-gateway/#configure-nat (Configure IP Forwarding & Configure NAT). I did this but I can’t connect to the gateway of each droplet (we have 2 droplets) (Droplet-> Networking-> Public Gateway), I did a ping but they don’t respond. Why is this happening? Is it possible to do what I comment on the problem? Sorry I’m a rookie.
