ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out

I cannot connect to my server via SSH. I have paid account.

From our logs, it looks like you were able to log in a few times over SSH after sending this message. Some reasons why it might have not been working before:

  • If you were connecting from behind some kind of proxy/firewall, it could have been blocking SSH access.
  • If you try to connect via SSH with an incorrect password several times in quick succession, the system might think you're trying to break in and block your IP address for an hour.

Perhaps one of those was the case?
