Hi there,

Connect to the server via the console from your droplet dashboard, then try to disable UFW or run the command below to flush the firewall rules:

iptables -F


I’m guessing the UFW firewall is enabled and is blocking the request. Could you please try adding this rule?

ufw allow from YOUR_IP_ADDRESS
ufw disable
ufw enable

You can get your networks IP address by clicking this link.

Hope it helps, thanks.
