Connection timeout when I try to generate a certificate

Hello, I try to generate a certificate for my domain paragoumba.fr but when I run the certbot --apache command on my debian 8 server, it ends with a Connection Timeout. Here’s the log file :

Thank you for your help

Hi @Paragoumba,

This is a problem with a blocked outbound connection to

https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory

For some reason, Certbot was not allowed to make an outbound connection to this URL. You could try it with curl -v for comparison (and also try connecting to some other HTTPS URL, like https://www.google.com/).

Yeah, with a bit of firewall configuration, it works. Thanks !
