I am making an app that requires making requests to a local service.
I don’t want to make the service public, so I created a droplet with a proxy app on it.
The problem is, I can’t reach the droplet from the app backend, even though I tried both the public and the private IP.
I tried pinging the droplet (and google.com) from the app using the console, but the packet loss was 100%.
How can I make it so the app can reach other services, and the requests from the app backend reaches the droplet?
