If you’re using a server try with this app “Filezilla” install in your windows and you’ll find a place to put the host (IP) username (root) of course and the password (of the machine) and connect you’ll see that will work. I hope to help you and understand what I said cause I’m not a good speaker of English Language.

Hello @pit07

The following details are used when you’re connecting via SFTP

  • Hostname and Port: The hostname is the IP address of the Droplet. The port is 22 by default.
  • Username and Password: The username and password are the credentials you use to SSH into the Droplet.
