Which IP (blocks?) do I need to allow through my firewall for Drople Console?

Reading the doc for how to allow Droplet Console to access a droplet, it only mentions allowing ssh through. Currenly, the attempt just times out. I would REALLY prefer not to open SSH up to the world. Which IPs do I need to allow ssh access?

Hi @solitaryr,

Regarding the Web Console, you shouldn’t be having issues or needing to allow anything on the Droplet.

Having said that, unless you’ve changed anything in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, your Droplet can be accessed only by the Web Console or with SSH key so opening the port 22 shouldn’t be a problem.

Additionally, you can allow port 22 only for your IP address and use PuTty to do so.
