Getting started with mesh gateway issues

Hi,

I’m trying to get started with consul and gateway meshes. I just want to test out how the gateway works between a k8s cluster and vm cluster. I’ve tried to follow these articles:

I’m just testing on my local pc, deploying to a minikube instance and just setting up consul locally, and trying to connect the two.

So I’m using these helm values to deploy to minikube:

global:
  name: consul
  datacenter: k8s-primary

  tls:
    enabled: true

  federation:
    enabled: true
    createFederationSecret: true

  acls:
    manageSystemACLs: false
    createReplicationToken: false

ui:
  service:
    type: 'NodePort'

connectInject:
  enabled: true

meshGateway:
  enabled: true
  replicas: 1
  service:
    type: NodePort
    nodePort: 30085
  wanAddress:
    source: Service
  affinity: null

server:
  affinity: null

And to run consul locally I’m running

consul agent -config-file consul.hcl

With the contents of consul.hcl being:

cert_file = "/home/zane/IdeaProjects/consul/vm-secondary-server-consul-0.pem"
key_file = "/home/zane/IdeaProjects/consul/vm-secondary-server-consul-0-key.pem"
ca_file = "/home/zane/IdeaProjects/consul/consul-agent-ca.pem"
primary_gateways = ["192.168.99.104:30085"]

server = true
datacenter = "vm-secondary"
data_dir = "/home/zane/IdeaProjects/consul/data"
enable_central_service_config = true
primary_datacenter = "k8s-primary"
connect {
  enabled = true
  enable_mesh_gateway_wan_federation = true
}
verify_incoming_rpc = true
verify_outgoing = true
verify_server_hostname = true
ports {
  https = 8501
  http = -1
  grpc = 8502
}

bind_addr = "192.168.99.1"
bootstrap = false
bootstrap_expect = 1

With this config I’m getting “no acks received” errors. Here are logs from k8s server:
