Question

Unable to set-up SSH on my droplet.

I following this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-04

and my droplet was set-up with no ssh key, so I am trying to copy the one I have created locally to the remote droplet. But I am getting this error:

/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: ERROR: ssh: connect to host <MY_IP> port 22: Connection refused

Could you please help me?

Ok. Solved. The machine that I was on had it’s port 22 closed. So, the issue was on my side.
