Hello, @yohan44

The error:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).
lost connection

occurs because you currently have the password authentication disabled and you can only use the public key to connect to droplet number two. You can copy the key from droplet one to droplet two and this will work.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
