Connect to my VPS

Posted November 25, 2016 3.8k views

Hello, I can’t connect to my VPS via “Bitvise SSH Client” under Windows knowing that it worked very well before, and although I did a backup and destroy the droplet, it remains the same problem ..
I receive the following message: “Connecton failed. FlowSocketConnector: Failed to connect to target adress. Windows error 10060 .......”

Doing a lookup on that error it looks like aside from an issue with Windows itself this would usually indicate that the remote server did not respond. I would recommend logging into your droplet from the console in the control panel to make sure the ssh service started up properly. You can attempt to restart it from there with:

sudo service ssh restart
