DO Ideas 2

Completely rewrite that damn console access because it does not work worth a damn in either safari or chrome on a mac

Really, it sucks and does not work.

WHEN it gets me to a console it randomly stops working and only power cycling the VM seems to do anything about it which makes no sense whatsoever.

I hate it with the wrath of a 1000 suns and wish it do die in a fire that hell would be envious of.

Otherwise you guys have a great service and you rock!

    We've done a large rewrite of the routing layer that creates the VNC connections which is now powered by Go. We also wrote up a blog post about it: https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/new-super-fast-droplet-console-thanks-golang/ If you are still having connectivity issues please open a ticket but otherwise the new code should be much more reliable as well as much faster in initiating the VNC connection. Thanks, Moisey

    It's very laggy on Chrome for Windows as well; but that's why I use Putty. On Mac, you should be able to just use your normal shell. Look for YouTube tutorials.

    Hey Jeremiah,

    Have you opened up a support ticket it may be something specific to your VM that's causing the issue.

    Thanks,
