How do I configure my firewall to allow SSH traffic for new the Remote Console / Recovery Console?
I installed the new droplet-agent on my CentOS 7 droplet, but attempts to connect using the Droplet Console timed out.
I reasoned it was my firewall (iptables) setup. When I disabled iptables, the Console connected, using IP address 188.8.131.52. ARIN shows that CIDR 184.108.40.206/19 belongs to Digital Ocean, so that makes sense.
How do I configure iptables to safely allow only legitimate SSH traffic for the Droplet Console?
Thanks in advance for your help!
