I've got a DigitalOcean droplet which is running on Ubuntu 16.04 which I am trying to access via PuTTY (the SSH client).
Whenever I connect to the droplet, I am prompted with the user login as expected, however after putting in the password for a user account, it asks for it again as though the password was incorrect. I can clarify 110% that the password is correct. See below:
I can access the console through the droplet's control panel on the DigitalOcean website, and the login details I am using are identical to that of PuTTY.
Using the console that I can use through the DigitalOcean control panel, I have checked my UFW settings and OpenSSH is allowed in its entirety.
How can I solve this issue? I need SSH access from PuTTY and other external terminals.
