Can't connect to SSH (port 22 is open, console works)
I got a droplet yesterday, configured it to be a VPN by following the guide ( https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-16-04 ) and it worked just fine untill suddenly about 3h in it disconnected me.
I checked the status - it was running but I couldn’t ssh into it. I reset the root password and logged into console. ssh is running, the droplet can ping outside the network etc.
I’ve not made any other changes to the droplet other than following the guide to the letter.
