SSH connection time out after creating droplet
I’m trying to write a provisioning and deployment script for a java application on debian 9.
My provisioning .sh script looks like this :
doctl compute droplet create DocumentationApplicationDroplet --image debian-9-x64 --region sfo2 --size 512mb --ssh-keys 9c:00:ec:04:9a:ed:74:fc:63:da:97:56:36:cb:88:8a --format ID > result.txt export DROPLET_ID=`tail -1 result.txt` export DROPLET_IP=`doctl compute droplet get $DROPLET_ID --format PublicIPv4 | tail -1` ssh root@$DROPLET_IP "apt-get update"
When I run this script it creates a Debian-9 droplet that I can see on the website.
But once the droplet is made and the apt-get command gets executed I get ssh: connect to host 188.8.131.52 port 22: Connection timed out
The IP you can see is the correct IP that I can also see on the website.
I have also created a new .sh script that looks like this :
ssh root@IPofmy_droplet “apt-get update”
where the IPofmydroplet is the same as the one I can see on the website and DROPLETID.
When I run this script, it works and apt-get update command gets executed on my droplet.
Any idea what the problem is here?
