“mongod” is listening on Because it’s listening on the local loopback interface (, you will be able to connect to it only from the droplet itself. You need to set bindIp to in /etc/mongodb.conf and restart MongoDB:

sudo service mongod restart

First, you need to check if there’s anything listening on port 27017:

sudo netstat -plutn | grep 27017

If you see the mongodb process in the output and still can’t access port 27017, try deleting the existing rule and adding the following rule instead:

sudo iptables -D INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED --dport 27017 -j ACCEPT 
sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27017 -j ACCEPT
