Does k8s consul connect work without connect-service-upstreams?

In my environment I have a collection of about 60 microservices that interconnect with each other. When I was reviewing consul, I thought we could reference the various services by DNS.
Is this not possible with connect? Am I forced to reference all other services via assigned ports on localhost?

Hi @jcampbell,

I just replied on this other thread about dynamic upstreams / transparent proxy redirection.

TLDR; at the moment, Consul requires that services be assigned ports a localhost, but we’re looking to address this in the next release of Consul.
