Postgres attach: lookup i/o timeout


I’m trying to develop a Remix application (with Postgres) but I run into errors.

Connect to postgres
Any app within the personal organization can connect to postgres using the above credentials and the hostname "horeka-db.internal."
For example: postgres://postgres:****@horeka-db.internal:5432

See the postgres docs for more information on next steps, managing postgres, connecting from outside fly:

➜  horeka main ✓ fly postgres attach --postgres-app horeka-db --app horeka
Error Get "http://horeka-db.internal:5500/commands/databases/horeka": dial: lookup horeka-db.internal. on fdaa:0:4d22::3: read udp [fdaa:0:4d22:a7b:163a:0:a:0]:52017: i/o timeout

➜  horeka main ✓ flyctl ssh console -s

We can't establish connectivity with WireGuard for your personal organization.

WireGuard runs on 51820/udp, which your local network may block.

If this is the first time you've ever used 'flyctl' on this machine, you
can try running 'flyctl doctor' again.

➜  horeka main ✓ flyctl dig txt _apps.internal
Error connect tcp [fdaa:0:4d22::3]:53: operation timed out

➜  horeka main ✓ flyctl -a horeka dig txt _apps.internal
Error connect tcp [fdaa:0:4d22::3]:53: operation timed out

Note that in the past, I already succeeded to setup a similar app with Postgres without any issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :pray:

Digging into the forum, I found some suggestions from @kurt and tried to reset my wireguard config:

➜  horeka main ✓ flyctl wireguard reset
Automatically selected personal organization
New WireGuard peer for organization 'personal': 'xxxx'

➜  horeka main ✓ flyctl -a horeka dig txt _apps.internal
;; opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 50091
;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;_apps.internal.        IN       TXT

_apps.internal. 5       IN      TXT     "horeka-db"

➜  horeka main ✓ fly postgres attach --postgres-app horeka-db --app horeka

Postgres cluster horeka-db is now attached to horeka
The following secret was added to horeka:

It seems resetting wireguard was the right move. Not sure what happened. Would love to get more info on that one.

I hope it can help someone in the future :slight_smile:
