Hello, everyone!

I have a Diego application. From the app's Garden container I can access the Internet and establish connections with tcp services running on other VMs but I can't connect to a tcp service running on the same VM until I allow the container to access external networks via the Garden API - https://github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator/garden/blob/master/doc/garden-api.md#allow-a-container-to-access-external-networks-and-ports. Also, I've created CF security groups to allow tcp traffic for all VMs I am trying to connect to.

My questions are is this an expected functionality and what is the idea of the "allow the container to access external networks" API call since it only affects access to the same VM?

Thanks!
