How to get applications to be connectible using Floating IP?
I have enabled Floating IP for my droplet, and I am able to SSH into it using either the public IP or the floating IP no problem.
I currently have some LinuxGSM game servers configured and set to utilize the floating IP address instead of the public IP address so in case I decide to snapshot and dispose of the droplet and restore it later, I can access them with the same IP address.
Unfortunately I don’t seem to be able to connect to any of the servers utilizing that Floating IP address and I don’t really know what kind of configuring I need to do. I have all the appropriate ports forwarded for the servers and I can connect to them if I utilize the Public IP, but just not the floating IP.
What might I need to configure to accomplish this?
