Having not much exposure to working in consoles, I am not sure in which console I need to put commands.

  1. Is it the console that opens from PuTTY (screenshot 2)
  2. Is it the console that opens after clicking Launch Console (screenshot 1)

Or are they just alternative way to get the same work done?

Hi @DigitalSplendid,

You can try and allow your IP address in your droplet’s firewall.

Please try with the following lines

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

You can replace XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX with your own personal IP address. To get your own IP address, click here

As soon as you’ve added your IP, save the iptables configuration

iptables save
