Virtual console requesting password, when there isn't one
I have an existing droplet that I wanted to make a quick change on from my work computer. Now, my work computer has changed since creating the droplet, and the work computer’s public key isn’t loaded on the droplet (yet). I figured I’d go to the virtual console and add the key, and make the fix quickly while I was there, however, upon entering the virtual console I was prompted for my password. This wouldn’t be a huge deal, except I’m not using a password. :/
Is there someway that I can make my droplet realize that I’m accessing it from the DO interface, and to let me in? Or, do I have to create a password just so that I can get in for now, and then remove it again later?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
