Slow to connect to droplet through ssh or ftp
Three to four months ago connecting to my droplet through ssh took about a second. Then suddenly it takes from a minute to two before I’m prompted for the password. And then about the same time to get to the command line in my centos droplet.
Sam goes for an ftp connection. A minute to connect and list the files. Another minute for connection is established to upload a file. Then the file upload it self isn’t too bad. But still, waiting two minutes to connect isn’t cool.
I’m on the cheapest package. But I find it weird that it was quick and then quite a substantial drop in speed.
Is this a know problem? Is it something that can be fixed? Or do I need to upgrade to a more expensive package for quicker connections? Mind you that its only connection that is the problem. The initial connect.
