Thank you for your reply. I have tried Termius before but something didn’t work. I will test Samba now.

Hello,

As far as I know, at the moment the Files app on iOS only supports smb connections. So in order for you to be able to connect via this particular app, you need to setup smb on your server. Here’s an article on how to do that:

Another way to connect to your droplet via your iPad is to use an SSH app like Termius for example:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
