How to access mongodb using private ip from another droplet on Ubuntu.

Posted December 26, 2017 4.1k views

Hi there.

I want to connect to mongodb on droplet from another droplet.
I have disabled firewall to get it out of equation.

I have set “bindIp” to the private ip of the droplet in mongodb.conf.

Now from another droplet, which also has private networking enabled I do
mongo –host PRIVATE-IP

but doen’t connect, I am getting this is return:

connecting to: PRIVATEIP:27017/test
2017-12-26T04:41:53.102-0500 Error: couldn’t connect to server PRIVATE
IP:27017 (PRIVATE_IP), connection attempt failed at src/mongo/shell/mongo.js:148
exception: connect failed

Can anyone please advice what I am doing wrong?
