Config drolet with given access

December 1, 2014 1.5k views

Hello. I need help to config a droplet. I'm developing an app in rails for somebody and he gave me the IP address, username and password to config the droplet. But I can't find the way to access to it. Is there an extra tool for doing it? Thanks

By default SSH access is provided on new droplets so the details you were provided will most likely allow you to make an ssh connection to this droplet. If you are on Windows you can use PuTTY to connect to your droplet.

PuTTY is an open-source SSH and Telnet client for Windows. It allows you to securely connect to remote servers from a local Windows computer. This tutorial will cover how to connect to your Droplet from your local Windows computer using PuTTY.
