I figured it out. I had not given putty the location of my private key. Till now I had always used putty with password only.

thanks for your help.

Did this work? I’m running into this issue. Normally if I were to start an Ubuntu droplet, I would be sent a root password. This didn’t happen with FreeBSD, since it says I need to SSH in. When I try to SSH in, it rejects the connection. I have no way of accessing my new server.

thanks for your replies
