bitcoind - Can't connect to Bitcoin RPC on DigitalOcean server




I am running bitcoind on a DigitalOcean droplet with public IP address e.g. 1.1.1.1.



I would like to connect to it via RPC from another DigitalOcean droplet with public IP address e.g. 2.2.2.2.



Both Droplets are running Ubuntu Linux 18.04.



~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf on 1.1.1.1:



datadir=/mnt/vol1
disablewallet=1
rpcbind=1.1.1.1
rpcuser=x
rpcpassword=x
rpcallowip=2.2.2.2/32
server=1


netstat -ln | grep 8332 on 1.1.1.1 yields:



tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:8332          0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 ::1:8332 :::* LISTEN


RPC commands on 1.1.1.1 such as ./bitcoin-cli -rpcuser=x -rpcpassword=x -rpcconnect=localhost -rpcport=8332 getnetworkinfo return normally.



However, on machine 2.2.2.2, when I run ./bitcoin-cli -rpcuser=x -rpcpassword=x -rpcconnect=1.1.1.1 -rpcport=8332 getnetworkinfo I get:



error: Could not connect to the server 1.1.1.1:8332

Make sure the bitcoind server is running and that you are connecting to the correct RPC port.


Machine 1.1.1.1 has firewall rules in DigitalOcean as follows:



Type        Protocol        Port Range      Sources
SSH TCP 22 2.2.2.2/32
Custom TCP 8332 2.2.2.2/32


Note that SSH into 1.1.1.1 from 2.2.2.2 is working just fine.



sudo iptables -L on 1.1.1.1 gives:



Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination


Is there anything obviously wrong in my configuration or setup?



Running curl -v 1.1.1.1:8332 on 2.2.2.2 immediately returns with:



* Rebuilt URL to: 1.1.1.1:8332/
* Trying 1.1.1.1...
* connect to 1.1.1.1 port 8332 failed: Connection refused
* Failed to connect to 1.1.1.1 port 8332: Connection refused
* Closing connection 0
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 1.1.1.1 port 8332: Connection refused


which from what I have read likely indicates a firewall issue.
