Last updated on DECEMBER 14, 2023

Applies to:

OCI Compute - Version N/A to N/A [Release 1.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The goal of this document is to explain how outbound and inbound traffic work correctly for OCI instances with private network access only (having their vNIC on a private subnet of a VCN).
This is needed in scenarios where the OS needs to be updated, and online repositories need to be accessed, Internet access is needed, and so on.
