Thanks, I got it working. Though just rebooting was not (probably) the
entire solution. My server was rebooted last night, because it had updated
itself. Which means I am on podman 3.4.1 for example. The 'podman unshare
--rootless-cni ping 184.108.40.206' did not work. What I have done as well is
remove all networks in podman except for the default podman network and
then rebooted the system. That seemed to have solved the problem. Not sure
if this is useful information for you.
Thanks, for the help,

Have you tried rebooting? The rootless network logic is not super robust,
it is possible that some tmp files were not removed correctly or the
special slirp4netns process for rootless networking died somehow. A reboot
should fix this.
If it still does not work, please check if `podman unshare --rootless-cni
cat /etc/resolv.conf` and `podman unshare --rootless-cni ping 220.127.116.11`
