I can easily log into the server from Mac OSX Terminal but can't log in on my iOS devices.

I set up my DigitalOcean server from my MacBook Pro. I can easily log into the server from Terminal. However, when I try to remote into the server only iOS devices (iPad and iPhone), I get “Permission denied”. I have reset the password twice to make sure I was using the correct password, but still get the “denied” message. I have spent about 6 hours trying to figure out what is wrong, but am stuck.

That seemed to do the trick

Seems like I will have to destroy my Droplet and create a new one without creating a key - password only… If that doesn’t work, I guess I will delete my account since the whole reason for it was to allow long ins from iOS devices.

I normally use an SSL key when I remote into my droplet from OSX Terminal. But I think I was able to use the password to login using the Digital Ocean console.
