Hello :)

I use my DigitalOcean from one year and i never had problems.
Since yesterday i can’t connect to my server with ssh command. I always have “Operation timed out” and i can’t neither access to it by the domain name…

I have restarted the server, and still timed out…

Do you know a solution ?

Thanks in advance!!

Can you login to your server using Console Access on DigitalOcean control panel and send me the output of this command.

iptables -S


Thank you for answering :)

Unfortunaly, i can’t connect with Console Access… i always have “Login incorrect”

I don’t understand what’s going on…

  • Try resetting your root password. There is an option to reset the root password on DO control panel, it will email you a new password.

    • Done! The keyboard in Console Access is bad.. keys are mixed.. haha

      I reconfigured my firewalls and all is ok!!

      Thanks a lot for you help!!
