Putty & Filezilla not working on my droplet.

  • Posted October 16, 2014


I haven’t really used my droplet in a while I was just using it to host college projects and stuff for my lecturers. I have not really logged into the droplet using putty or filezilla since may or so. But I wiped my droplet today. I set up a user account using the built in command console but when trying to access FTP it just keeps saying connection timed out, Could not connect to server, same thing for putty. I checked that SSH was running fine and it was. But checking the iptables it came up with this iptables. Does anyone have any advice for me?

You need to install the kernel that you’re running on your droplet:

sudo yum install "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)"

and then reboot your droplet.

Let me know if that works! :)
