I’m pretty confused about how to whitelist my Fly app for MongoDB Atlas. Apparently I was assigned a shared IPv4 address when I launched my app, but whitelisting that with Atlas doesn’t work.
Then I read something about that not being the correct kind of IP address, but didn’t really understand. It doesn’t go in the right direction or something?
I then read the bottom of this page and it suggests that my IP address is IPv6? Atlas will not allow the whitelisting of IPv6 addresses.
Is there a way to make my Fly app talk to other stuff using the shared IPv4 address that was assigned when I launched it?
Or is the only “easy” solution to just allow access from any IP to my database? I know very little about networking (I don’t want to have to know).
Can anyone explain what I need to do in language that is suitable for a non-networky person?
