Hello, konkovac

You can double-check the IP address of your Windows machine and make sure that you’re using the correct IP when you try to establish a connection via ssh.

In theory you should still be able to ping the IP address. It might be a firewall issue when connecting to port 22, but the ping should work fine if ICMP connections are not blocked from the ISP.

can you ping the windows machine from the droplet? “Network unreachable” sounds like it can’t find the machine, not a connection problem.

Are you sure your windows machine is visible from the internet?

Does it work from other places?
