Hi, I set a blockchain in a digital ocean vm and I want to do local development from my laptop without starting a node, I have this in the .conf file but it doesn't work.

rpcallowip=  // another vm that does work
rpcallowip=192.168._*_ // laptop ip

thanks for your help

A 192.168.x.x address is an IP address for a private network, so it cannot be the IP address that your laptop appears with, from the perspective of this server. Try going to from your laptop to discover its public facing address (which may well be that of the router your laptop is behind).
