Unable to ping my server.
I have another question about this tutorial. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean
Down the bottom it says to ping your domain name.
So I tried ping www.mydomainname.com.au
and I got a request time out.
Then I tried pinging my server ip address and that didn’t work either.
Could this be because I have set up my iptables to only accept port 22 and port 80?
Or would this be happening for some other reason?
