Hi there,

What I could suggest is double-checking if the Droplet that you are trying to SSH to is up and running. You can check that via your DigitalOcean Control Panel here:

Also if the Droplet is up and running I would recommend connecting via your Web console and see if the SSH service is running and make sure that port 22 is open.

I use Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS) x64.

I start by updating a project.

After disconnection, I can no longer connect with ssh. I already have the key host implemented.

I try :

ssh: connect to host port 22: connection timed out.

Still no connection to ssh.

Hi @zlatnaspirala,

I know you’ve submitted the answer but still I wanted to clear in case anyone else stumbles on this question what are the standard reasons behind such issues.

  1. Network issue Your droplet might have experienced some network issue and making it offline. In cases like that, you can use your WebConsole to SSH to it and fix your problem. Additionally,@bobbyiliev gave a simple example that I always follow as well when want to check exactly that

  2. Firewall issue Like in this case, you could’ve block yourself out with a firewall rule you’ve added or a service like fail2ban. In this case, again you’ll need to use your WebConsole to SSH to your droplet and see exactly what’s going on.

  3. Droplet Compromised In some cases, when your droplet get’s compromised, DigitalOcean stops it’s traffic in order to prevent any HighLoad and bad outgoing traffic. These cases are very rare and you would’ve received an e-mail about this.
