403 You do not have access for the attempted action.

I am just starting to use DO. I created 1 droplet and added 2 domain names. I am trying to use the “inlets” tunneling gateway to my web sites running on Raspberry Pis. Previously I had it working but every time I created a gateway it also created a new droplet.
Now when I try to create the gateway I am getting the above 403 error message.
Anther problem I am having is when I try to create a Lets Encrypt certificate I get the following error: “One or more DigitalOcean Name Server not found for domain.” That name was selected from the drop down list of my domains.
Any help provided on these two problems will be greatly appreciated.

Regarding the SSL certificate, you need to change the Name servers of your domain name to the DigitalOcean nameservers. Then the Let’s Encrypt option would work as expected. You can do that by following the steps here:

Regarding the gateway that you’ve mentioned, how exactly are you creating this?

DNS is the naming system that is used to bind a domain name to a web server. In this guide, we will change the nameservers for a domain that we have registered and point it to a DigitalOcean Droplet.
  • Thanks for your answer. I had discovered the problem shortly after posting my question. I had registered 2 domains at Namecheap for $1.00 each and I changed the name server to Digital Ocean on one but forgot to do it to the other one. Went back and changed the second one and everything worked fine.
