Failed to establish a connection to the console. Please reload.

I get this error message when I click on “Console Access” button inside my droplet. Anyone has any idea about this error?

Everytime this error has happened to me, it has been due to a firewall. Check to make sure that ports 6000-7000 are being allowed through.

Same here, and quite frustrating.

There seems to be quite a lot of people with this same issue. There comes a time when “open a ticket” is not good enough for subscribing users. How many people does Digital Ocean need with the same problem before they actually realize it may be more than a single users issue? I have the same issue exactly after creating a brand new droplet, and the only support I find is the same issue reported by other users repeatedly, do you think it may be actually a problem with Digital Ocean (perish the thought)??
