Hello, @ibvkintern

You should be using SFTP to connect to your droplet to Securely Transfer Files with a Remote Server.

I will recommend you to double check these article:

SFTP is a secure way to transfer files between local and remote servers. Much more secure than FTP, this protocol uses an SSH tunnel to establish a connection and uses encryption to transfer files in an interactive session.

Hello, @ibvkintern

You should be using SFTP to connect to your droplet to Securely Transfer Files with a Remote Server.

By default, SFTP uses the SSH protocol to authenticate and establish a secure connection. Because of this, the same authentication methods are available that are present in SSH.

You can use the root username and password in order to access your droplet using sFTP. If you’re unable to access the droplet using the ssh you can also reset your password.
