SSH connection timeout

downloaded geth repo and ran “make”. Note I didn’t even run the compiled result! Now I can access to console only via website but not with terminal from my coputer. How to fix that?


What is wrong with this cloud? SSH sometimes fails on timeout, sometimes writes “access denied”.

When you next try ssh, use ssh -v -i [key] user@host

You should get some additional information:

  • is ssh even responding?
  • key or permissions issue?
  • username or password issue?

Can you share some more details about the issue you’re encountering? Can you share the exact error you are seeing when attempting to connect?

You should also be aware that if you plan to use geth to mine cryptocurrency this is only allowed on our optimized droplet plans which feature dedicated vCPU cores. Mining cryptocurrency on standard droplets is disruptive to other users and is not allowed.
