I did few steps for the gunicorn and nginx. Everything was fine, but, then i again tried to login into vps by ssh then i get following errors.

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Now, i can’t login into digitalocean vpn to change /etc/hosts.deny

Further, i tried from the browser based terminal access then its wired that i can’t type “/” as my keyboard is not in english format.

Help is appreciated!
