Connecting to DropletIP:22…
Could not connect to ‘DropletIP’ (port 22): Connection failed.

Hello, @hehuijun1983

Can you please verify that you can reach the droplet from your end? Can you ping the droplet IP? The ssh connection seems fine and I can reach the droplet. Can you test this using a different ssh-agent from XShell like PuTTY for example?

I will also recommend you to check our tutorial on How to Troubleshoot SSH Connectivity Issues

Hope that this helps!
