Floating IP for Garry;s Mod server

So, I wanna have a Floating IP over a digitalocean droplet, and everything works fine as in connecting to SSH over the Floating IP, but when it comes to port 27015, nothing.


Hey @Taux1c

UFW’s status returned Inactive, and the command dindt return any results.

I want users to be able to connect to a Source dedicated server through the floating IP. Users are not able to connect through the floating ip right now, they CAN however connect with the droplet IP.

Edit: But connecting to the console through PuTTY DOES work with the Floating IP

Try running this command

sudo ufw status | grep 27015

If you would be so kind as to post the result here that would be helpful. Also what are you trying to connect on that port? I ask because there is any number of things that could be wrong here.

The port may not be open, the above command will tell us that. It could also be that the program isn’t listening on that port. (Those are the two most common.)

Hey @ismailnavarone,

@Taux1c makes a great point! It is also possible for the port to be in use from another application. Could you run netstat -tulpn | grep 27015 and share the results (if any)?

Best, Dennis
