  • If this is a new droplet it is important to note that before you will be able to make an SFTP connection you will first need to log in via SSH in order to change the temporary password generated when your droplet was created.

    If you have already done this, can you confirm that you are able to make an SSH connection using a client like PuTTY currently?

  • I am able - i have a screen shot but dont see a way to send it to you

    i logged in to putty and then have no idea what to do

    thanks!
