Issue with swap External IP


I have swapped the external IP using IP Transfer option.
After the swap, both nodes have not internet access and I cannot ssh connect to them.
I used this instruction
Also, I tested with out Auto-configure networking option and with static IP settings. It doesn't help me.
When I swap the IP addresses back, everything works OK.

Could you please help me fix this issue?

@devpro After you swap IP addresses, does enabling Network Helper and rebooting the Linode restore network connectivity? If you're still having trouble, feel free to open a Support ticket so that our team can check your Linodes for any possible infrastructure issues.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, but this didn't help.
Network Helper is enabled and I have rebooted a few times both nodes.

Also, I have opened the ticket 5 hours ago, but still haven't received a response.
