Can't connect with ssh from OSX or Ubuntu 14.04
I have a new 1GB droplet on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 that I am trying to connect to with ssh. So far I have been unsuccessful.
I was trying to connect earlier today from the terminal in OSX but I wasn’t able to get passed an error. I don’t have access to that computer at the moment but
ssh -v root@[my server ip] ended with something like:
debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.2 ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by server
After I got home I tried connecting with the terminal on my home computer running Ubuntu 14.04 but still had no luck. It always results in
Connection closed by [my server ip].
The more detailed response from
ssh -vvvv root@[my server ip] results in:

I confirmed that
id_rsa.pub on my home system matches
