Used to be able to ssh into droplet, now operation times out
Hi, I set up an Ubuntu 16.04 droplet and nginx one or two days ago - all the setup was done via ssh from my os x machine, and I encountered no problems (yay DigitalOcean!)
However, today, attempts to ssh into my droplet reliably fail with “Operation timed out”
I can still access my droplet without issue via the DigitalOcean “console” feature. I have rebooted my Droplet several times through the web console. I have now put my droplet behind cloudflare. I still see the following failure when I try to ssh into my droplet from my home machine:
$ ssh -vvvv firstname.lastname@example.org OpenSSH_6.9p1, LibreSSL 2.1.8 debug1: Reading configuration data /Users/AKA/.ssh/config debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 21: Applying options for * debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 56: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] port 22. debug1: connect to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22: Operation timed out ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22: Operation timed out
…when I try:
sudo systemctl status ssh
I see that the ssh.service is Active and running (I can’t select text on the web console, sadly).
Any help would be greatly appreciated; I’d love to not have to destroy the droplet and start all over, but I guess that’s what I’m going to try next.
