Egress IP for OpenShift

By default out going traffic of the pods are using the hosting node’s IP address to reach to the destination with NAT. Sometimes, the destination might be protected by firewall or the application itself in such a way that only a fixed set of source IPs are allowed to access. For this scenario, you may control the egress traffic of the pods by setting an egress ip for the specific namespace of the pods.
