Internet Access to Resources

Consider the following cluster network types when determining the public Internet access configuration for resources that fully-managed connectors must access. For full Confluent Cloud networking details, see Networking in Confluent Cloud.

Public and Private IP addresses

Refer to the following sections to determine your cloud networking configuration for connectors that do not use static egress IP addresses.

Public IP address accessible over the Internet

The following table provides connectivity information for a managed connector with a public IP address accessible over the Internet.

Cluster Network Type Connectivity Supported? Data Plane Network Access Control Plane Network Access
Public Endpoint Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2
VPC Peering and Transit Gateway Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2
Private Link Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2

Private IP address hosted in a customer VPC

The following table provides connectivity information for a managed connector with a private IP address hosted in a customer VPC.

Cluster Network Type Connectivity Supported? Data Plane Network Access Control Plane Network Access
Public Endpoint No N/A N/A
VPC Peering and Transit Gateway Yes Source IP address used is from the /16 CIDR configured by the customer for the Confluent Cloud Cluster. None
Private Link No N/A N/A

Static Egress IP Address Support

To determine your cloud networking configuration, refer to the following: for connectors running on AWS that use static egress IP addresses.

Important

To use static egress IP addresses, you must be running a multitenant or Dedicated cluster on AWS and on the public Internet (without VPC peering or AWS PrivateLink).

Public IP address accessible over the Internet

The following table provides connectivity information for a managed connector with a public IP address accessible over the Internet.

Cluster Network Type Connectivity Supported? Data Plane Network Access Control Plane Network Access
Public Endpoint (AWS) Yes Fixed set of static egress IP addresses (see static egress IP addresses). None
Public Endpoint (Azure/GCP) Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2
VPC Peering and Transit Gateway Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2
Private Link Yes Public IP/CIDR range where the Confluent Cloud cluster is located. Public IP/CIDR range for us-west-2

Private IP address hosted in a customer VPC

The following table provides connectivity information for a managed connector with a private IP address hosted in a customer VPC.

Cluster Network Type Connectivity Supported? Data Plane Network Access Control Plane Network Access
Public Endpoint (AWS) No N/A N/A
Public Endpoint (Azure/GCP) No N/A N/A
VPC Peering and Transit Gateway Yes Source IP address used is from the /16 CIDR configured by the customer for the Confluent Cloud Cluster. None
Private Link No N/A N/A
