Well, since I found the answer to my question, let’s share: <br> <br>In this post ( the DO employee Raiyu says that private IPs is next on the list. Apparently the initial ETA was delayed a little, but I hope we can hear about it soon.

Well, my question is similar: <br> <br>Can I setup my WWW droplet to comunicate with my MySQL droplet over LAN? My interdroplet traffic would no count for the Datatransfer cap, would it?

cyberprank, what was the answer for the datatransfer question… I want to set up a mysql replica on a remote system, aka, master in us and the other droplet in am, will I be charged for inter network data transfer?

Will traffic between droplets will be counted in 1Tb (5$ droplet) ?

Make sure you bind it on or your droplet’s ip instead of (/etc/mysql/my.cnf) too.

Just install another instance on another droplet. <br> <br>For example: <br> <br>apt-get install mysql-server
