Solution: You need to change the default password using the Droplet Console (upper right corner) before you can SSH using PuTTy or WinSCP. Once you login with root and default pass it will ask you to change it immediately. (You can paste it with Ctrl+V) Type new password twice and you should be able to SSH with the new password now.
