I have a problem with connecting to my droplet via FileZila. First I changed the root password. Than i tried to connect with FileZilla with this configuration:
Host: Droplet`s IP
Port: 22
Protocol: SFTP
User: root
Password: “changed password”
But it says “Network error: Connection refused”.

Hi, could you paste the ssh configuration?

you could find it under /etc/sshd/sshd_config or for output

cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config

you could login into droplet with ssh with putty or other?

I figured it out. The port was change.
Thanks for your answer.
