Possible to connect to a private service from a cron job

I have a cron job that requires redis. Therefore I also have a private redis service. But I get Name or service not known although I used the given name and port. Is it possible to connect to a private service from a cron job? Does it have to be in the same region?

It is possible to connect to a private service from a cron job, but yes, they do have to be in the same region.

Each Render user and team gets its own region-specific private network. All the resources within this private network (including cron jobs and private services) can connect to each other securely and with low latency.

Fantastic. Thanks a lot. And of course makes sense that must be in the same region… :smiley:
