I am using Ubuntu on my laptop, and am trying to SSH into my VPS with this command:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -p xxxx
(Port removed for security)
It doesn't connect however. If I add the
-vvv command, I get this:
OpenSSH_6.0p1 Debian-3ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to liamwli.co.uk [126.96.36.199] port xxxx. debug1: connect to address 188.8.131.52 port xxxx: Connection timed out ssh: connect to host liamwli.co.uk port xxxx: Connection timed out
Why is it doing this? It works fine, and connects using putty on my Windows installation, so why doesn't it work using the built in ssh client on Ubuntu?
