The Microk8s cluster network does not have direct access to the machine's external network. To allow outside traffic, microk8s provides a port-forwarder.
Run the ‘./install-port-forwarder.sh’ to install a system service that runs the Microk8s port forwarder. Once installed, the service will run after rebooting so that Connect is accessible.
If the port-forward is not running, the Agent will not be able to access the cluster since it uses an external IP to access it. The Connect UI will also not be reachable.
To uninstall the port forwarder service run ‘./uninstall-port-forwarder.sh’
