Yes, there have been instances where users have tried to connect to MongoDB instances deployed on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) from Airbyte deployed on Google Compute Engine (GCE). In one such instance, a user was advised to consult with their infrastructure team to allow access to MongoDB in GKE. This could potentially involve adding a Load Balancer in front of the MongoDB instance. More information on this can be found in the GKE documentation on ingress concepts here. However, please note that configuring the network/connection between the two involves security measures specific to your company, and hence, detailed instructions cannot be provided. You can find more details on this discussion here.

That shouldn’t make any difference as long as it’s accessible over network, no?
