I’m trying to connect from different machine to my newly created droplet with ssh key that I created on my iMac at home now I’m at office using Ubuntu and don’t know how to connect to my droplet ??

Since it’s a fresh droplet I assume you only have root as a user and don’t know the root password. Which means that the only way for you to ssh in is to use one of the ssh keys that you added to the droplet.

If you could ssh into your home machine you could ssh into your droplet and change the root password temporarily to be able to ssh into from work for now.

  • seams that this is only solution for now.. yes I should go home to fix it because home ssh server is not enabled XD
