Cannot connect remotely using SSH
I am really a newbie and I tried following this tutorial for beginners but I have not been successful.
I am using ElementaryOS on my laptop to access my droplet but once I type and hit enter the command ssh firstname.lastname@example.org the reply I get is Connection closed by 188.8.131.52.
Please help. The tutorial I was reading make it sound like it was easy for beginners like me to follow but I really could not figure out why I can not proceed to the second step because the first step bugged me down.
I also do not know how to proceed.
Any help is appreciated.
