Opening port 443 on Linux

I followed the instructions below using ufw, it worked fine and tested instantly for ports 80 and 22, but for 443 I get Connection refused on the test, and no ufw block or in syslog or sign of attempt in auth.log.

Does DO block 443 on their own?

$ sudo ufw status | grep 443

To Action From

443/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 443/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)

I don’t see all the responses that I’m getting email about, so can’t respond.

The latest is I’m looking into using nginx as a frontend to jetty, so will post again as soon as I try.

I have a droplet accepting traffic on port 443. Do you have a server on port 443?
