I can use ssh in browser, but when I trying to do it from my terminal, I got a freeze with this code: https://gist.github.com/gambala/69b1d8d431875c6aef49 Problem isn't in droplet because it works from another computer My OS is linux Mint 14, zsh shell, RoR droplet stack.

UPDATED: special ssh console (not terminal) in RubyMine is working. But terminal isn't.

This is happening to me too. Furthermore, while transferring many files (all files from a Jekyll[1] build), scp transfer will run until a point, then hang and stop. I can't finish the transfer of many small files.

Same issue here on Terminal 2.5 + OSX 10.10.1. I don't have this issue SSHing into any other machine - the issue is just with my droplet. It doesn't freeze immediately for me, but when I leave the terminal alone it reliably freezes after a timeout.

Edit: I found this article, which solved the issue for me: shapeshed.com/preventyoursshconnectionfrom_freezing
