Services in remote istio cluster in a multi cluster istio setup are not accessible

Hi all,

I am working on setting up a multi cluster environment wiith one master cluster containing control plane and one remote cluster with few istio components deployed .

In remote cluster:
i .when i try to run istioctl proxy-status
Error: unable to find any Pilot instances
ii. istioctl proxy-config endpoints -n sample sleep-6758c4cb78-zpj8t
Error: error unmarshalling config dump response from Envoy: unknown field “hostname” in envoy_admin_v2alpha.HostStatus
iii. istioctl --kubeconfig=/root/config -n istio-system proxy-config endpoint sleep-6758c4cb78-zpj8t
Error: failed to execute command on envoy: unable to retrieve proxy container name: unable to retrieve Pod: pods “sleep-6758c4cb78-zpj8t” not found

and also my ingress gateway in remote cluster doesn’t listen on 443
istio-ingressgateway-7dbc4495c8-b2q8s:/# netstat -lntp
Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 22/envoy
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 22/envoy
tcp6 0 0 :::15020 :::* LISTEN 1/pilot-agent

problem: i am unable to reach services deployed on remote cluster using servicename.namespace:port

Did you get your remote istio-ingressgateway running? That caused me trouble for a while because I am using load balancers with hostnames (on AWS). Do you diverge from the tutorial in some other way?
