Issues with UFW firewall


#1

I selected localhost:8080 , but that connection is refused using nginx with letsencrypt. followed simple install and not so simple guide, Ubuntu 18:04
tried ufw allow 8080.

Iv’e tried both tuts from brand new vps instances, installed and tried archlinux, build from scratch and I cant get anything to work.

Update: I have narrowed it down to the firewall: in syslogs I have a UFW block on any port I try, standalone or with reverse proxy.

sudo ufw status
Status: active

To Action From


OpenSSH ALLOW Anywhere
8080/tcp ALLOW Anywhere
80/tcp ALLOW Anywhere
