Can't connect via ssh into my new droplets

I can not connect via ssh to my new servers.

A week ago, I created droplets with access through rsa-keys and cant connect to them without any problems.

Now I create new servers with the same connection method (rsa-keys) and get a connect to host error 206.189.64.140 port 22: Connection timed out

I have already created 4 droplets and could not connect to any of them. I connected to the server via the web console and checked authorized_keys - it’s my keys and all must be alright…

Hello, @cloudinfrastructure

What you can do is to ssh with the Verbose mode as this will give you more information about the ssh connection itself. You can use the following command:

ssh -vvv root@DropletIPaddress

Once you have the output please share it with us so we can check it and see what might be wrong here.
