After successfuly installing NordVPN on my droplet (Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS) x64). I tried to connect to the VPN and while connected to the VPN the droplet isn’t accessible from the console at DigtalOcean nor from ssh’ing, how can I connect to a droplet that is connected to a VPN?

Hi @swimmingaquadolphin,

It’s really hard to troubleshoot issues like that without any specific information. Having said that, give the following question a read, it can turn out to be helpful:

Additionally, check the following link - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tools/digitalocean-vpn-setup

It should help you configure a VPN on your Droplet. It won’t be NordVPN but it can still work.
