Kubernetes with ConsulConnect and TransparentProxy access external service

I am piloting the 1.10.0 beta with connect and transparent proxy enabled. One of my requirements in we are leveraging mongoDB Atlas via an AWS PrivateLink. I am looking for a way to allow this Transparent Proxy. By default I am provided an SRV record, but I also can pull the direct dns records. I want to be able to allow certain services(pod) access to these dns records.

Hey @greg-hunt1

You should be able to connect to external services (i.e. services that are not on your mesh). This is controlled by the MeshDestinationsOnly property of the Mesh config entry. It’s false by default, so you should be able to connect with no problem.
