  • Are you running a web server with SSL? If so, then your web service would already be using port 443 and you should select a different one. You should be able to access your droplet to do this via the web console in the control panel.

  • thanks for answer but i use only ssh server, no web server.

  • OK, i try 80 port and it's working, this is useful

  • use

    netstat -na
    

    to check if somethng is LISTENING on port 443
    then shutdown that service or change its port

    you should also check if there is any firewall rules on that port

    iptables-save
    

    hope it helps.
