Unable to connect to the GCP VM Instance, How do I fix this issue ?


This looks like you’re attempting to use a private address (only reachable if already on a GCP instance on the correct subnet). Either set and use a public address or run knife bootstrap from GCP itself on a VM that has access to that subnet.
