Lab 3-4: Cluster IP not accessible from master node

Hi there, I have run lab 3.4 without any issue but there's one point which I can't understand. I agree that the endpoint IP is not reachable from the master node if the nginx pod is running on the worker node. But how about the cluster IP ? Irrespective of whether I am on the master node or on the worker node, I should be able to get a response when doing curl :80 ...
The above is true in the case when I have only one endpoint running and when I have 3 endpoints running. In both cases, the curl :80 times out. What is that so ?
Thanks for your explanation.

    Hi @teggy,

    The issue you encountered is frequently reported in the forum. It is typical for an environment where the cluster nodes are not able to fully talk to each other. Take a look at the lab setup videos in the course resources, as they address known possible setup issues. In summary, these issues are caused by firewalls blocking traffic to specific ports or port ranges of the cluster nodes.
