EKS/GKE workloads not reachable?

We’ve gone through the instructions for setting up a cluster in GKE, The cluster works fine, and I can deploy nginx as a generic workload. However, the workload is not reachable either from the workload screen or in a load balancer. There’s no errors shown, the traffic just doesn’t make it to the workload, and the connection attempt eventually times out.

We’ve replicated the same issue in Amazon when using EKS. Again, we can deploy nginx as a workload, but can’t reach it once it’s deployed.

Is there some nuance we’re overlooking here?

Solved it. In EKS and GKE, the workloads have to be deployed with a Layer 4 load balancer in the port mapping section.
