I am experiencing an issue accessing a specific port in my ubuntu Droplet (8069: tcp)

Hello Support Team,

I am experiencing an issue accessing a specific port in my ubuntu Droplet (8069: tcp). I checked on ubuntu host, the firewall is disabled. I can access the port when I am connected locally either from Firefox or using telnet, but not from outside.

Can you please check from your end where this traffic gets blocked?

FYI, it used to work before and until now I can access other ports from outside (22, 443, 80,..). I’ve also checked if my droplet is listening on this port using netstat and it’s the case.

Best Regards

Hello, @infobe73b25b458e55ecf3c56d

What happens you try to connect to the port (externally) using telnet?

telnet Dropet-Ip-Address Port

e.g

telnet 1.1.1.1 80

You can also use nmap to see which ports are open on your droplet:

nmap 1.1.1.1

If you’ve made any recent changes to your Firewall configuration, perhaps the port is not open for external connections.

If you’re running UFW (you can check it with)

sudo ufw status

You can open a specific port using this command:

sudo ufw allow 22/tcp

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Alex
