SSH Connection Timed Out


Hello Sir,

For a few days I have not been able to SSH with MobaXterm to a Jenkins server I created on my EC2. This has been the same problem I attempt to SSH with GIT as well. The message I get is as shown below.

Even after I restart the session I get the same problem. Please could you verify if my AWS account has issues. I changed my computer as well but same problem. I disabled firewall, cleared cache and a few other stuff, yet no solutions.

Network error: Connection timed out


Session stopped

  • Press <return> to exit tab

  • Press R to restart session

  • Press S to save terminal output to file I have searched online for resource and have done everything possible but I cannot move forward. I disabled my firewall, cleared my cache, and a lot more but I still cannot connect through SSH. I bought a new computer thinking it would be different but same problem.

When I log into the chrome using public IP and port 8080, all I get is "website not reachable" or " Connection time out".

Please revert with a response as soon as you have time. Thanks

Hi sir , As a part of trouble shooting activity first can you check the EC2 is in running state and health check is passed . Another view is once you restarted the EC2 instance your public IP address might changed verify it. in case you are not using the elastic IP for the instance. Another possibilities is check you are using the right key configured with the instance. when its come to service Jenkins verify the service is up and running .

  • Hello Sir, I have done the above and still have the same problem. What can I do at this point? Any ideas. This is a time sensitive project as I cannot continue without having to complete this step. If you work with the AWS team can you verify if my account has the right configurations setup?

    Thanks and waiting for your feedback. Sincerely Edwin
