Making Kafka accessible from outside the cluster

By default, Kafka is only available locally. Setting externalAccess.enabled in the Helm Chart just breaks the entire Kafka installation (no pod starting).

This is outdated, the correct method, would specify the port (int) as ports (map), and then you specify the external port inside the map.

 ports:
  external: 1337
