Internal IP only

  • Posted October 22, 2013

Is there any way to give only the internal IP to the Ubuntu droplet? Just because it’s a worker web server behind the load balancer and we don’t want this machine be visible from outside.

I had the same question. I’m still not sure if it is a good idea.

You can also preferably drop all inbound packets on the eth0 (public) interface: <br> <br><pre>iptables -I INPUT -i eth0 -j DROP</pre>

Of course! <br>Remove “address”.

Couldn’t you go into <code>vim /etc/network/interfaces</code> and simply delete the interface to the public IP?

You could do this: <br>nano /etc/SERVER SOFTWARE NAME/sites-available/default <br> <br>then add deny from all
