hi guys,

i face a new issue now. i have successfully create instance from my dashboard. and i can see ip assigned to my instance from dashboard. what confusing me, i have try to allocate floating ip to the instance. however, seems like i cannot get to the instance. i try to check if my routing is having problem but seems like it able to talk to my external network.

i use below command to check.

ip netns exec <routerid> ping <mygateway ip>

i can see it get reply from my host inside my network. but when i try to ping my instance, it give destination unreachable.

any suggestion where should i look for the solutions?? crack my head again.

Hi Semy

check your security groups. You need to open ICMP for ping and 22 for ssh
