Error Connecting SSH | Error: ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer

Im trying to connect to the server thru SSH. I created few SSH Keys and tried to connect via terminal. For first few tries, it asks me 2 passwords but somehow all failed. 

 

Now, when I tried to key in ssh to connect, it gives me this error:

ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @benznext, thanks for posting.

It's hard to say what might be the issue, but I suspect it's an issue with the SSH keys.

I suggest removing the keys and then trying to connect without them to ensure you are able to connect.

Then I would create new keys and upload those to the server and try again.
