Cannot ping my default gateway

Posted May 18, 2020 612 views

So this just happenned after a server restart using shutdown -r now, without anything else changed explicitly by us.

Suddenly i couldnt ping my droplet ip from my local laptop, cannot ssh to that ip address.

I had to go to the droplet control panel and click console. From there pinging the default gateway also failed.

I attach these screen captures from the droplet console through the browser:

My ufw status and ip addr

My ip route + ping + uname -a + dmesg

I assume there’s something wrong the the eth0, since i cannot ping anything else other than own ip address. ufw is already disabled.

Any ideas what could be wrong ?

You’re firewall is not enabled, but I’m not 100% sure why you can’t access it. Do you have the correct firewall rules setup on Digital Ocean itself?
