I have a simple Python server on a DigitalOcean Ubuntu droplet that should serve the index.html file in the /dist folder:
port = 8000 os.chdir(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'dist')) Handler = http.server.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler httpd = socketserver.TCPServer(('', port), Handler) print('Serving at port ', port) httpd.serve_forever()
I have no cloud firewalls running on this box. I ran 'sudo ufw allow 80/tcp' to open the firewall and if I run ufw status it shows port 80 as being open to everybody. I ran 'sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8000' to redirect traffic from port 80 to port 8000.
If I run nmap from another box, the only open port is ssh on 22. Port 80 is filtered. Navigating to the host in my browser results in a connection timeout. Trying to serve directly from port 80 yields the same results. If I try nmap or netstat locally, the port shows open but the server crashes (connection reset by peer, no other useful error info). What could be causing this?
