Can't log into new Debian 9 Droplet via SSH
I created a new Debian 9 droplet and I can’t seem to log in. The command I’m using is
ssh -p 22 root@<IPv4-address>
followed by the password that was emailed to me by digital ocean. I have tried using the web based console to login and that doesn’t work either. I’m wondering if the issue is on DigitalOcean’s end rather than mine because the droplet is brand new and logging in using the password they sent me doesn’t work moments after the droplets creation. Also there are no SSH keys associated with my account, so that shouldn’t be an issue.
Anyways, if you guys could offer any suggestions that would be great. Thanks.
