I can't connect to my droplet ip address

Posted October 24, 2019 5.3k views

this is my droplet ip address =>
I’ve checked my pm2 status saying it’s online
when I try with my port num like this then I can connect to my site…

I’m guessing it’s either a proxy problem or my ufw rules problem??

I’ve tested the connection and I am able to connect:

# telnet 3005

Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

Are you still experiencing the problem? If so maybe the 3005 is closed on your local network for outgoing TCP traffic.


  • Thank you so much for answering Bobby!
    my goal is to connect my site to my domain name

    digital ocean dns records look like ——

    type value hostname

    godaddy nameservers———–

    This was not working for me at all
    so I thought the fact that I get “welcome to nginx page” if I type was the thing that was causing the problem.

    Am I supposed to get nginx page when I go without 3005 port?
    If there’s nothing wrong with my connection, why am I not being able to connect my domain name?
