Hi there!

You should be able to connect with external droplets via their private IP through a pod in DOKS as long as the external droplet is in the same region as the DOKS cluster. Feel free to open a support case if you would like for support to help you more in depth on your specific requirements.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
