SSH login problem , cannot login remotely over ssh
Hi , I cannot remote ssh to my droplet, only from within the digitalocean web based ssh client. I am also using webmin and openvpn.
I get from osx
ssh: connect to host 178.x.x.x port 22: Connection refused
I have port 22 open with UFW inbound and outbound with tcp or udp
do i need to specify the external IP or have I broken something by trying to make RSA keys for login ?
My other services are working well, only ssh seams to have a problem. Any ideas would be much welcomed.
here is my ssh_config
