I have a droplet in the same region as my managed DB, like DO suggested. I have added my IP and droplet to the Restricted Access section of the managed database. I can connect via public connection from my computer. If I try connecting from within the droplet using private credentials, no error message, just timeout. Is there a step I’m missing? I even disabled the droplet’s firewall thinking the port was being blocked.
