Hi @benifa

Are you running something like fail2ban, which might be blocking your access to the droplet or maybe you activated the firewall?
Can you access your droplet via the Console from the control panel?

I’m having the same issue. I can access it via web console. I can also access the ssh via VPN. but my internet connection restricts my usage of the VPN as it causes my internet to crawl.

I do think my local IP got banned. Is there any way that I can undo this.
