Whenever I try to SSH my VPS account it says:

SSH connection time out during banner exchange. 

I want to know the reason behind this problem and a solution. My VPS is running Ubuntu 12.04 Server and I am trying to connect from a Ubuntu 12.10 client. I am using key based authentication and SSH version is 2.
