Hello, @aymanroshdy2019

You can use telnet or nmap to see if the port is actually open and if you’re able to receive connections on it:

telnet IPADDRESS 22

Using nmap you will see the open ports and the services listening on those ports. If 22/ssh is open you will see it.

nmap IPADDRESS

Hope this helps.
