  • Droplet has ufw installed but disabled.
  • Droplet has Algo (WireGuard) server installed and VPN running fine.
  • I have three VPN clients all on my home LAN: “Pi”, “Mobile” and “Laptop”.
  • I edited <fIP> /etc/hosts to define VPN IPs for the three clients.
  • I can ssh to sshd running in the cloud <fIP>.
  • From WWW I can ssh into my LAN sshd running on VPN client “Pi” ( via DO <fIP> using JuiceSSH app on VPN client “Mobile” which is running WireGuard client and successfully connected to <fIP>.

Hello, Just to understand your question better, are you trying to access a webpage on if so, have you tried accessing on your browser after you are connected to the VPN? Do you have a firewall on If so have you opened up access to port 80? Are you able to successfully ping after connecting to the VPN? If the ping is successful, and port 80 on the firewall is open on the web machine, my guess is you should be able to access webpages… cheers!
