Egress-gateway setup - Istio 1.1

#1

Hello,

In my environment, all the calls exiting the cluster go through a headless service. This headless service has an ILB(Internal Load Balancer) IP as an endpoint.

I have tried but I am not able to make the calls through headless service but calls directly to ILB is happening. I cant give ILB’s IP as a permanent solution. Need all the calls to passthrough one exit point in cluster. my ILB listens at port 30080 and 30443.

ILB’s IP DNS name - istio-ilb.lle-mcommerce.com

So I moved to using egress gateway to route all the calls to my ILB’s IP. But I am not able to work it out, here are my configs:

Egress-gateway:

apiVersion: networking.istio.io/v1alpha3
kind: Gateway
metadata:
  name: istio-egressgateway
  namespace: default
spec:
  servers:
  - hosts:
    - istio-ilb.lle-mcommerce.com
    port:
      name: tls
      number: 443          #used 30443 too here
      protocol: TLS
    tls:
      mode: PASSTHROUGH

virtual-service-egress:

I am not able to move forward with this config. Can someone help me with my use case ?
