OpenVPN no longer works, is it blocked?

I’ve been using OpenVPN hosted on my droplet successfully for several months. But recently it won’t connect. At first I guessed maybe my ISP has blocked all OpenVPN connections, but I tested it on other servers and it’s working. So I think maybe Digital Ocean has blocked OpenVPN connection from the country I live in.

How can I find out which is the case? Has it been blocked by my ISP or Digital Ocean?

Hi there @ahmadx87,

What I could suggest is running a traceroute or an MTR from your PC to the server. That way you will be able to check where exactly the connection is being lost.

Hello there,

Also, make sure to access the VPN server and check if all services are up and running.
