IRCD setup and running, how do I find out the IP its on?

So I’m new and learning so please forgive me. I have setup an IRCD using unreal and the server is running with no errors. But I can’t find the IP I would use to connect to my server. I tried the ones tied to my droplets IP … but that’s not working. I assume I’m missing a step. I wonder if it has something todo with DNS?

Hi @216bb0b10b04429580d0ba38d0af7c,

Yes, the Droplet IP would be the one you need. To connect to your Droplet, you can use SSH:

  1. ssh root@Your-IP-Address

Additionally, you can use the Droplet Console. The Droplet Console is a browser-based way to connect to Droplets. Instead of using ssh in a local terminal, you can use the Droplet Console in your preferred web browser.

More about that here :

Now, if your Domain doesn’t open your IRCD, then it’s a DNS issue, yes. You need to update your A record to point to your Droplet’s IP address.
