I started testing the floating IP feature and I am running into a few problems:
I am able to assign a floating IP to a droplet. According to the documentation, as this is a brand new droplet, it should already have an ‘anchor’ IP to use. However when I try use curl with --interface 126.96.36.199
I get: curl: (45) bind failed with errno 99: Cannot assign requested address curl: (6) Could not resolve host: Pragma; Unknown error
Initially I’d thought the issue is somehow related to curl IPv6 bugs so I spun up another droplet with IPv6 disabled and I am still getting the error.
The second issue I have is trying to automate this process using REST API (initially using curl as well). When running an API call I get: ““Due to limited availability we have temporarily disabled IP reservation in this region.”” however the same funtionality is working fine using website admin UI.
