did you setup SSH? and if yes, then is it by RSA key?
how about the user you use to access; root or a normal user you created?

Hello,

Are you trying to SSH using your SSH key or just with a password?

Note that by default on most Linux distributions password authentication is disabled.

If you don’t have your SSH key on file, you could enable password authentication by following the steps here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/resources/lost-ssh-key/

After that, you could use PuTTY and authenticate with a password.

Hope that this helps!
Regards,
Alex
