This issue has been resolved. It seems to be a bug where Google Cloud servers are not assigned public IPs, making it impossible to bind an IP directly. In the end, I resolved it by using a domain name and updating the hosts file to point to the private IP for binding. Other nodes connect to this node through the domain name.

Using domain names is not recommended. You don’t need public IPs. You can use the private IPs assigned by google and have all intra-node communication travel via private network (recommended for security). Then only the load-balancer, or proxy has a public IP and a private in the same network as the nodes. This greatly reduces the number of attack vectors.
