Can't ssh into my droplet, even after rebooting and recreating
I can access my droplet from the web console, but not through SSH at its IP address, the connection times out. It’s a brand-new droplet, I’ve never connected successfully. I have done no setup whatsoever.
This issue isn’t resolved after power cycling, or even after destroying it and making a new one!
I’m just trying to ssh using
ssh root@<droplet's ip address>, but it won’t connect!
Fwiw, I can’t
ping it either. I have a droplet on a separate account that I can ssh into, but not this one!
