Dear*,

how can i connect to my droplet via WinSCP?

I use file protocol SFTP, Host name : my Ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, port number 22, user name root and the password ( i reset-ed my password via your page)

when i click login i get error message :

Connection has been unexpectedly closed
Server sent command exit status 1

Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running an SFTP server?

Can you help to connect to my droplet via WinSCP?

Best Regards,
David.
