Pod unable to curl loadbalancer
My pods are unable to curl any domains attached to or the IP of my loadbalancer. It just times out.
It does work from an external address however. This is currently preventing cert-manager from creating a certificate because it needs to curl the domain to test it (http-01 challenge method).
I have done hours of research on this and I have come up with nothing. I don’t understand why a pod would be timing out.
Does anyone have any suggestions? If I had to guess it involves Kubernetes DNS stuff, but I have a very poor understanding of how it all works.
The exact error in the challenge is:
Waiting for http-01 challenge propagation: failed to perform self check GET request 'http://my.domain.dev/.well-known/acme-challenge/<challenge_url>': Get http://my.domain.dev/.well-known/acme-challenge/<challenge_url>: dial tcp <load balancer ip>:80: connect: connection timed out
