Why can't my servers talk to each other?

By default, dedicated and colocated servers are not able to communicate or “see” each other on the layer 2 network within a single MacStadium data center. This is to facilitate security and isolation of customers from one another.

If you have multiple servers at a single MacStadium data center and wish for them to see each other without touching the public internet, a Private VLAN (PVLAN) or Virtual LAN (VLAN) can be created to enable this.

Open a support ticket and our engineering team will explain the options based on your current account and subscriptions.
