I am trying to connect into my Droplet using Forklift instead of FileZilla or Transmit. Has anyone done this yet and if so, any recommendations?

Hey friend,

ForkLift looks pretty cool. I had never heard of it before today. Given that I've not yet used it, I'm not sure I could give a step by step. However, I found a section in their documents that may make this easier:

If you scroll down just a bit there's a screenshot showing a sample of SFTP connection. You could do something like this:

Protocol: SFTP
Server: {your droplet IP}
Username: root
Password: {your root password}
Path: /

That should get your foot in the door :)

Kind Regards,
Jarland
