Outgoing connection timing out?

IPv6 Getting Started Networking Ubuntu

My ISP, UPC Austria, just switched our connection to IPv6 without any way to have an external IPv4 address. Since I am hosting a server (files, games etc) at home, I need a way to access it from the IPv4 internet. I tried setting up a droplet that forwards IPv4 connections to my IPv6 server on the ports I need using the following instructions:


The connection to my home server keeps timing out, but only from my droplet: it is accessible correctly from my computer using its global IPv6 address. Furthermore, my droplet can ping6 Google just fine.

Am I doing something wrong or is UPC blocking DigitalOcean droplets from connectiong to their network for some reason?
