Setting up remote connection to mongo droplet

Hi, I am trying to set up a remote connection to a mongodb droplet.

I have come across a few tutorials but none of them work. I need to be able to access it through mongoose and compass. Can someone point me to the right direction?

Hi there,

I tried following the steps from this tutorial here and it seems to be working as expected:

Can you share the output of the following commands here:

  • Check if the service is binding on 0.0.0.0:
  1. sudo netstat -plant | grep 27017
  • Check if your firewall is allowing the traffic on port 27017
  1. sudo ufw status
