Octopus Server IP used for Tentacle communication

The server we are using to host our Octopus Server has multiple IP addresses (some public and one private). We are trying to get the server to communicate with a Tentacle over a VPN connection through a firewall. We added a rule to our firewall that says anything on port 10933 from the private IP is allowed. The problem we are having is that Octopus Server is initiating the connection to our Tentacle with the public IP. Is there a way to tell it to use a specific IP for tentacle communication?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for getting in touch.

If you have multiple IP addresses for your server, there is no way to limit which IP address the server communicates to a tentacle with. I believe polling tentacles may be an option for you in this situation, where you reverse the communication and have your tentacles poll your server. Could you please give that a try and see if that will work for your particular setup?

Let me know how you go.

Cheers
