You would first need to set up an FTP server on your droplet if you have not already:

The link you have displayed should work with any FTP server. The format is:

ftp://username:password@[ipaddress]/path/to/your/file.xml

Make sure you create a new user account on your droplet for this and do not share your default root account details.
