I have 2 droplets, same data center behind the same fire wall. I have enabled private networking. My end goal is to have a web application on droplet 1 and mysql database on droplet 2 and connect the two via private network IP over port 3306. However, I cannot ping from droplet 1 to droplet 2 using the private ip address. I’m not sure what i’m doing wrong. Ports 22,80,443 are open on the firewall. Ubuntu 16.
