Add your own ip to the firewall

Add a button in the web interface that automatically writes my own public ip in the field, like aws does

    You can already do that, but it is not as straight forward as aws.

    What I meant was: It would be handy to have a button that writes the public ip of the device used to connect to the web interface.
    Currently to whitelist the public ip of our internet connection we have to go on a website like, copy the public ip address and paste it in the firewall web interface, which takes a lot of time and is prone to mistakes, especially if we have to do this everytime the public ip address of our internet connection changes because our residential connection has a dynamic ip address.

    Hello Paolo,

    You can type the name of the Droplet you want to add and we will add it's IP automatically to the list of source/destination. Would that be enough for what you need?
