SFTP error using Cyberduck: EOF while reading packet

October 18, 2014 4.4k views

I am trying to host my website using a droplet and I am using Cyberduck on MacOSX. While setting up the SFTP I get receive a "connection failed" alert and it reads, "EOF while reading packet".

When I tried on FileZilla it responds with:
Error: Connection closed by server with exitcode 1
Error: Could not connect to server

I searched around for help and I could not find anything helpful (I'm a novice).
