[NODEJS] Sockets disconnecting before secure TLS connection can be established.

I was trying to call some APIs through my Droplet as a test, and I ran into some very odd errors: “Client network socket disconnected before secure TLS connection was established” and “SOCKETTIMEOUT” To make sure this was not the fault of my code, I ran it on both a local Windows and a Linux machine, and I had no problems. What could be causing the issue? The Linux machine had essentially the same configuration as the droplet, yet still ran it without error. So far, I have tried switching all https to http, without success.

test script: const axios = require(‘axios’) axios.get(‘path-to-api’,{params:{}}) .then((rsp)=>{ console.log(‘Got sucessful response!’) }) .catch((err)=>{ console.log(err) })

Droplet info: ubuntu 20.04 LTS Nodejs 15.3.0

Test Machine (Windows) info: Windows 10 (latest) Nodejs 15.3.0

Test Machine (Linux) info: ubuntu 20.04 LTS Nodejs 15.3.0

I’m having the same issue; only on the droplet but not from my PC or other server. Could someone from DigitalOcean shine some light on this perhaps?
