I setup a new droplet about 36hrs ago and followed the tutorials here on DO to create the ssh keys for my local computer. I logged out and then back in after to make sure it worked and I must have logged out and back in a few times after that.
Today however when I run ‘ssh myusername@myserverip’ nothing happens, the cursor moves to a new line and just sites there, no error message is given and Im not prompted to do anything else. Ive tried new terminals as well as restarting and still the same. I can see the .ssh folder in my main user directory on my computer (ubuntu) and in that there are the following files
known_hosts my-ssh-key my-ssh-key.pub
these all seem to have the keys in too.
What is the problem here?
