Question

I am having trouble pinging my D.O. server when I use the domain name. See details:

Apache DNS Ubuntu 16.04

From Local Client:
I can ping ipv4 of D.O. server.
I cannot ping ipv6 address (times out)
I cannot ping domain.com (times out)
I cannot ping www.domain.com (times out)

From D.O. Server
I can ping domain.com
I can ping www.domain.com

DNS propagation is 100% complete as verified on whatsmydns
I verified that the DN setting are correct
A record is correct
AAAA record is correct

Since you’ve tagged this Apache, I’m assuming you have that installed on your Droplet. Can you access http://domain.com? Is it just ping that is not working? Do you have a firewall configured?

I’m having same problem.
Not able to ping my example.com from windows command prompt.
I’ve not installed any firewall.
Is some webserver necessary to be installed first for ping to work?

I’ve not installed/activated any firewall.
