Server refused key

Posted May 7, 2014 4.2k views
when I create a droplet using the ssh key and a custom image, I am able to ssh into it fine on my computer. however, when I create a droplet with the API, I am unable to ssh into it because it will say 'Server refused key'.

Is this the same issue as here:

If so, I think that Exoflame is pointing you in the right direction. If you haven't set the user as "root" it will try to use the user of the local PC to login.
