Ubuntu - Host Entry for private IP
Is it possible to create a host entry on my Ubuntu VPS to reference another droplet but using the private IP address?
Here’s what I’ve got:
1) web1 @ private IP #1
2) mysql1 @ private IP #2
I’ve blocked all the connections on mysql1 so that only web1 can access it via SSH (port 22) and mysql (port 3306).
I’d like to create a host entry so that when I’m on web1, I can just type “ssh username@mysql1” and not have to remember the private IP address.
