Question

Connection refused outside of the droplet

I created a droplet to host the Bitcoin testnet node, for reasons I don’t know I can’t connect outside of the droplet. I am able to connect within the droplet, but whenever I try connecting outside of the droplet the connection always timeout.

I have updated the firewall to allow traffic from anywhere and even from my device IP address but all to no avail.

Is there anything I am missing out in my configuration?

Status: active
Logging: on (low)
Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing), disabled (routed)
New profiles: skip

Hi @toshmanuel,

The best way to see if the problem is from your firewall is to disable it for a minute and try to connect to an outside source. If it works then you know it’s from your firewall, if you still can’t connect then the problem would be somewhere else.
