Trusted sources not allowing connections from my IP

Environment: 1 Managed Redis Database 2 Droplets 1 Development computer

  • Linux Mint
  • NodeJS
  • ioRedis

Problem: When: Trusted Sources are empty (Open for everyone) And: Using Connection Strings Then: I can connect successfully from both my computer and the droplets

When: Trusted Sources are added,

  • Both droplets, and “Your current computer’s IP (…)” Then: it’s impossible to connect from my computer

I’m using the same testing script, I just change Trusted Sources and run again and it fails immediately.

What’s my IP gives the same result as the automatically IP in Suggested sources

Maybe you have a dynamic IP and you need to allow your whole IP rage.

Another thing that you could do is from your terminal run:


That way you will find your exact IP that your outgoing traffic is coming from.
