I have a host running HAProxy already. It's been up and running since before I did anything with Kubernetes. It works flawlessly as a reverse proxy and SSL terminator for various web things in various Docker containers on various other host machines.
Now I have a Kubernetes cluster up and running across some of those other machines. I've created the NodePort Service that exposes port 30080 on each worker node, as follows:
apiVersion: v1 kind: Service metadata: name: snginx labels: app: nginx spec: type: NodePort externalTrafficPolicy: Local #Cluster or Local selector: app: nginx ports: - protocol: TCP port: 8080 targetPort: 80 nodePort: 30080
From the machine running HAProxy (which is not part of the cluster), I can curl the NodePort successfully ( curl 10.0.0.20:30080 ), and I get "Welcome to nginx!..." However, if I set that NodePort as a backend in HAProxy, I get a 503 "No server is available", and HAProxy traffic log says:
localhost haproxy: [redactedIP]:49399 [30/Aug/2021:19:24:00.764] http-in~ load/load 66/0/-1/-1/67 503 212 - - SC-- 1/1/0/0/3 0/0 "GET / HTTP/1.1"
The haproxy admin log says:
Aug 30 20:07:13 localhost haproxy: Server load/load is DOWN, reason: Layer4 connection problem, info: "General socket error (Permission denied)"
However, I've disabled the firewall with
sudo systemctl disable --now firewalld
and verified the status is not running. Also, SELinux was disabled when I installed the cluster. Also, I can ping 10.0.0.20 just fine.
"load" is the hostname I'm using for testing load balancing (i.e. load.mydomain.com).
Also, if I use static NAT on my physical router to route directly to that NodePort, from outside the building, it works as expected.
What gives? What's the difference between the proxied request and curl?
