Question

Metadata service without a public network interface

Hello!

I followed the documentation here to create a gateway droplet and I disabled the public interface on my other droplets, behind the gateway. The problem is the metadata service on 169.254.169.254 isn’t available anymore and I can’t use ip route add 169.254.169.254 via {your-gateway-IP} dev eth0 since the interface is down. Is there a way to keep both the metadata service and no public interface?

Thanks!
