Unable to bind curl to a floating IP address
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 184.108.40.206
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.
