Why i can not connect to my sever since yesterday?
I want to upload some files to my website,but i can not connect to my sever.
I tried to use CuteFtp and WinsCP,said “connection time out”.Two days before that’s all normal.
I am in China,But i tried use a vpn ,that’s not useful.
My vps are in German.
Please help.
best regards.

Can you connect using console?

Make sure that openssh service is running and listening on port 22 with this command:

sudo lsof -i :22

Make sure you are using the right IP address

Hope this helps.
