Question

I can't connect to my droplet ip address

this is my droplet ip address => 104.248.70.243
I’ve checked my pm2 status saying it’s online
when I try with my port num like this 104.248.70.243:3005 then I can connect to my site…

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

Hello,

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

# telnet 104.248.70.243 3005

Trying 104.248.70.243...
Connected to 104.248.70.243.
Escape character is '^]'.
^]

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

Regards,
Bobby

    my goal is to connect my site to my domain name

    digital ocean dns records look like ——

    type value hostname
    A 104.248.70.243 ilgiyourpixels.com
    A 104.248.70.243 www.ilgiyourpixels.com
    NS ns1.digitalocean.com. ilgiyourpixels.com
    NS ns2.digitalocean.com. ilgiyourpixels.com
    NS ns3.digitalocean.com. ilgiyourpixels.com

    godaddy nameservers———–

    ns1.digitalocean.com
    ns2.digitalocean.com
    ns3.digitalocean.com

    This was not working for me at all
    so I thought the fact that I get “welcome to nginx page” if I type http://104.248.70.243 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?
