"connect ETIMEDOUT .........:27017" When connecting to MongoDB database

I have two identical databases, one for staging and another for production, each on a separate droplet and I already added my IP to the “Inbound Rules” so I can connect. I was able to connect to the database using the uri that belongs to the production database, but failing to connect to the staging one. An important note here is that others are able to connect to both.

Any idea what could be causing this?

To fetch local machine IP:

If you are still not able to access the MongoDB cluster after the above step, please open a support case with DigitalOcean.
