Ability to use gcloud without an external IP on the instance
For security reasons you may not want to have your instance externally accessible (e.g. it is a back-end webserver sitting behind a firewall instance, where the firewall is what people connect to), so you don't give it an external IP. It would still be useful to be able to use gcloud on that instance. Currently the request hangs, with no apparent timeout.
Thanks for the note/suggestion, we’ll look at it.
