Can't access MySQL on Private IP

Posted March 11, 2020 1.3k views

I spun up a LAMP server and enable MySQL remote access. I can connect from another droplet in the same data-center (or my home) with the public IP but I cannot get to it using the private IP on the server in the same center.

I also cannot ping that private IP from the other server t the center.

Any ideas?
