SFTP error using Cyberduck: EOF while reading packet

October 18, 2014 13.6k 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).

  • I have the same problem. Create a new doplet, even add a ssh key. I can not also access on my doplet via IP adress, also wordpress dont setup auto on creating. Something is wrong. First time i see this problem.

figured it out. after i ssh’d to the account it prompted me to change the password which later worked in FTP.

  • Yup this is what fixed it, just need to log into console to change password from default password in order to SFTP into the server.

Same problem here too… any advise?

same here. tried resetting my password
