I checked my firewall and NAT, they allow 30303 and 30304 on both TCP and UDP.

$ sudo ufw status | grep 3030
30304                      ALLOW       Anywhere
30303                      ALLOW       Anywhere
30304 (v6)                 ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
30303 (v6)                 ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
$ sudo iptables --list | grep 3030

EDIT

I also tried to follow this post to strictly set my peers to the revived ropsten net. But the peers still seem to be rejecting my connection.

30 Mar 2018 - List of Ropsten peers below updated


I used the following commands from How can I create a list of peers from my syncing geth node to manually paste into my non-syncing geth node using the admin.addPeer() command? to extract a list of peers from my local Ropsten node:

function getPeers() {
  admin.peers.forEach( function(e) {
    console.log("admin.addPeer('enode://" + 
      e.id + "@" + 
      e.network.remoteAddress.substring(0, e.network.remoteAddress.indexOf(':')) + 
      ":30303');");
  }) 
}
getPeers();

Here is the output of the command:

admin.addPeer('enode://7df4f8fa037f82cc03ba0c1acd3fccba4ae40fc03704283979f074cadf37cc5b70845d1acee4161c3432eb6934ba3020cbaf9cc2ba841cdfb03d113ebeef5b79@172.104.5.185:30303');

You can copy and paste the commands above to manually added these peers to your geth --testnet console JavaScript console.

    Thanks the method. However I'm without any syncing ropsten nodes. But good to know the method and up voted.

It seems that the ropsten bootnodes are down for quite a while now. I'm manually adding peers from https://gist.github.com/rfikki/9ebbda396cb8b56543448a7f913828e9 and it works.

    Sorry. Looking at this too late. If it's not too much trouble for you, could you kindly refresh the link?
