Help with initial DNS IP address set up on Windows 10
I have successfully created my droplet and have installed Ubuntu 16.04 with Putty on my machine that’s running Windows 10. When I set up LAMP successfully on the console, the installation did not give me any errors in the console installation. However, when I try and access my IP address for my droplet on the address bar which is supposed to give me the apache default page, I get a “This site can’t be reached 188.8.131.52 took too long to respond.” message. I’m thinking Windows 10 is blocking the IP address or a port is being blocked.
I’ve temporarily shut off the Windows 10 firewall but that hasn’t resolved the issue.
