Server timing out from China

June 5, 2019 243 views


I live in China, and I’m using Digital Ocean servers with Outline to set-up a VPN (as DO is the official partner of Outline).

Since a week, I have not been able to connect to my server, the connection is always timing out. I tried destroying my droplet and creating another several times, but I get the same issue.

Is there anything that can be done to fix this?

I am from China Mainland, also have the same question from yesterday.
And I have tried to setup some new droplets, which only works a few hours, then time out…

Any suggestion for this?

I think it is China’s firewall…

@stzwkbj , I’m trying it out with AWS , it seems to work, not as fast as with DO though.
