Question

vpn to all droplets

Hello,

I am starting to move all my on Prem VM’s to DO. I would like to setup a VPN connection between my office and DO. I dont want my droplets to have public IP’s I am looking for a way to have my droplets have private IP’s and then I connect to each of them locally. If they need external access, then I will allow it and get them a public IP. But some servers like the DB servers should only be accessible internally. Does DO offer this and if so how can I do this? If not is there a comparable way of accomplishing the same task?

One option is to simply just firewall deny all access from the outside to your IP. That will basically render your public IP unusable, inaccessible.

So for your DB servers, you can simply just block all in and outgoing requests via firewall configurations
