Does DigitalOcean Censor Outbound Connections?
I’ve run into a website/ip that I cannot access from my droplet which is using digitalocean dns servers. I get SERVFAIL when looking up the domain name. I’ve added the name/ip combo to my /etc/hosts file but cannot connect to the IP to ping or access the website using curl. These things work fine outside of my droplet. I’m using firewall but am allowing all outbound protocols/ports.
Is digitalocean taking it upon themselves to decide what parts of the internet I’m allowed to access?
