How to connect to droplet

Hi,
Sorry for this beginner question but I've been banging my head against the wall trying to connect to my own server for the first time. I've been reading tutorials and can't seem it figure it out. The server details are listed as "Ubuntu node-v0.12.5 on 14.04". When trying to connect with 'ssh root@1xx.xxx.xxx.xxx" i get the something back saying connection refused. I've also created another user on the server via the console within digital ocean and I can't connect with that user either.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my lack of experience

  • Remeber to use port 22 while parsing the IP address through terminal (if using Linux). If you are on windows, easier way is to use a SSH client like PuTTY.
