I have install droplet and setup on my Mac. But when I checked my IP adress I saw it did not change. But on my iPhone it’s working.
Could you please show me a way to test on my Mac. Why did it not working?

Thanks in advance..

Can you clarify what you’re trying to test?

You’ve tagged this message with DNS. If you recently made a DNS change, sometimes DNS results will be cached with your ISP, proxy, computer or router. If you visited the address previously on your Mac it’s likely that rather than asking the DNS server for the correct IP address again it used the last result it had.

You can clear the DNS cache on your Mac by following the instructions here.
