Hi @KDSys ,

Thanks you for your response. I forgot to say that my backend use Docker-compose. I allow all conections from frontend droplet but i want to restrict my backend droplet to my frontend droplet or my own network. I use nginx and Docker for my backend.

Thanks you

Hi @dmm2019,

If you wish for your frontend app to connect to your backend app, all you’ll need to do is allow all connections from the frontend droplet. The exact command is

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -s XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX -j ACCEPT
iptables -I OUTPUT -p tcp -d  XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX -j ACCEPT`

Just replace the XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX with your droplet’s IP address.

Regards, KDSys
