connection timeout on node.js app on Fedora
I am running my MEAN stack on a new Fedora droplet. I seem to have the same problem as described in https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/connection-timeout-on-node-js-app.
The interesting thing is that it was working after creating the droplet, but stopped about 24hrs after creation of the droplet.
$ node -v gives a result, ping and tracert to my IP work, curl however does not.
I tried a simple http-server ($ npm install http-server), same result (ports open, ping working):
Starting up http-server, serving ./
[root@fedora-512mb-fra1-01 ~]# sudo netstat -ntlp
