Docker SSL issues

HI all,

I’m trying to connect to Github from within the Docker runner in a k8s cluster but the Drone task can’t seem to connect to and gives me the following error:

ERROR     [ERROR]: failed to download the file: <urlopen error _ssl.c:980: The handshake operation timed out>

From wtihin the dind drone-runner container I can access github without issues, but when I try the same from within the Docker container running within the dind container I’m getting these SSL errors.

I am by no means an expert so maybe I’m missing something obvious, but please let me know if there is anything I can do to make this work.

$ kubectl -n drone get pods                                                                            main default/drone
