Connection reset by peer?

  • Posted May 6, 2014

I’m getting this error when trying to ssh into my droplet:

ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer

I was able to login an hour ago, not sure what is going on.


Happened to me on a droplet that ran out of memory.

Fixed it for me as well.

Anybody know why that is the case? As we don’t really have much going on on the Server

just want to add that I had the same error being generated on file uploads. turned out I was running out of memory too. resized my droplet and haven’t had a recurrence.

Even I am facing constant Connection reset problems in singapore region. IT occurs when using VIM and editing code.

Not sure what is going on.

I will add the -vv option and update the results.

Add “-vv” to your ssh command will provide more debugging information. So: <br> <br><pre> <br>ssh -vv root@your.ip.address <br></pre> <br> <br>That should give you a better idea of what the real issue is here. If you continue to have problems accessing your droplet, please feel free to file a support ticket.
