Im trying to connect to a mongodb server over a network but I cant get the connection to work.
I can connect like so on the local computer on which the server is running:
But connecting from a remote computer fails (where = the database hosts ip):
mongo <public_ip>:27027 Tue Mar 18 10:40:30 Error: couldn't connect to server <public_ip>:27017 shell/mongo.js:86
exception: connect failed
Notably this is response is different when the port is disallowed and rather than the
exception: connect failed error I get a timeout.
I have a firewall (ufw) but port
27027 is set to accept any connections. I also tried stopping the firewall altogether but had no joy.
What should I try to debug this problem, is there anything obvious I'm doing wrong?
Here's some extra info from the host computer that may be useful:
