I have booted up an instance in side a private VPC. I assigned an ElasticIp address to it and I can ssh into the instance with no issues. However, DNS is not resolving :(
in my /etc/resolv.conf I have
nameserver 172.16.0.23 domain eu-west-1.compute.internal search eu-west-1.compute.internal
but when I try and ping 172.16.0.23 I get
icmp_seq=156 Destination Net Unreachable
Which makes sense as I have no route to that private subnet. I can ping any external ip address i.e
but I cannot
I created the VPC using the wizard I assume that the VPC is assigning the /etc/resolv.conf settings.
and the documentation says I should have external dns access, but I don't.
Can anyone help?
