Console extremely slow to responde

I’m running OSX 10.11.6 and when I try to access the console for one of my droplets I get an extremely slow response time, it could be up to 1 minute from the point I type something until it appears in the console. I tried accessing the console via Chrome (55.0.2883.95) and Firefox (51.0.1) but both have the same issue.

It was working well a while back but I haven’t used it much since, thanks

It’s apparently using PuTTY and if true it’s a shame!

Back again trying to modify the ssh key via the console so I can login and pasting a few characters at a time, checking there are not extra spaces and it hasn’t changed the case or suddenly started inserting in the middle of the text. Half an hour at this! Is there no other way?

All I use the console for is to add an ssh key so I can ssh in. It is soooooo slowwwwwwwwwwwww that even doing that is beyond it’s abilities. Pasting in about 30 chars at a time, waiting for it to work, checking it has reached the end of the line, pasting in the next 30 chars is the only way to do it. It’s excruciating and I’m taking a break to vent some of my frustration! Permission denied if I try and ssh in any other way. Oh and there is the entertaining way it gets stuck in toggling the capitalisation of text so that all the uppercase goes to lower case and visa versa. Only vi or nano, not on the command line. And it’s switched to dark blue on black (which I can’t read), how did that happen? I would so love a simple console that just worked!
