Ports 80/http and 443/https are filtered on your Droplet?

Hi all

So I can’t access any sites on my droplet since the 30th of June and I just received an email from DO support saying:

“Testing shows that ports 80/http and 443/https are filtered on your Droplet.

A filtered result means nmap cannot determine the status of the port. Packets sent to the port are dropped without acknowledgement, so nmap cannot report the port’s status. This could also be due to firewall rules within the Droplet”

I haven’t got a clue how to fix the issue so any help/guidance would be great appreciated.

This droplet has been working without issue for a couple of years, what would cause this to happen all of a sudden?

TIA Cheers Neil
