Fully client mode access to a Ray cluster seems not to be possible

Severity: medium

I got the following message when I tired that. Why would that be?

Specifically, I tried to do ray.init() against a cluster that is fully remote to the machine I was on.

RuntimeError: b"This node has an IP address of, and Ray expects this IP address to be either the GCS address or one of the Raylet addresses. Connected to GCS at and found raylets at but none of these match this node’s IP Are any of these actually a different IP address for the same node?You might need to provide --node-ip-address to specify the IP address that the head should use when sending to this node."

Hi @Boris_Epstein. Could you share the cluster configuration you’re using? Are you using nodes with more than one NIC?
