How to connect to a managed mongodb through VPN

Hi there,

I created a managed mongodb to which I want to connect over my VPN which runs on another droplet in the same VPC. I use this VPN to connect from outside to other resources in the VPC. However, when I want to connect to the managed mongodb, that doesn’t work. I thought connection works when I add the IP range of the VPC to the trusted sources of the managed mongodb, and then use the ‘VPC network’ private hostname of the mongobd in the connection string, but that won’t work. Connection is only established when I add my computer’s IP address to the trusted sources but that’s a thing I would like to avoid.

Any hints?

Greetings Matthias
