How to use the gateway in inbound mesh expansion


I tried to follow the documentation to set up inbound mesh expansion with 1.1 on a bare-metal cluster to access in-cluster services from an vm outside of the cluster.

My requests end in a timeout, and they seem to get sent directly to the target pod (and some data directly to a telemetry pod) instead of being sent to the gateway. My podCIDR is not routable from outside the cluster. With the support for multi-cluster I expected this to work in 1.1 by routing through the gateway.

Am I mistaken here and podCIDR must still be routable for inbound mesh expansion or do I just miss some configuration?
