http://askubuntu.com – I am using Ubuntu on my laptop, and am trying to SSH into my VPS with this command: ssh [email protected] -p xxxx (Port removed for security) It doesn't connect however. If I add the -vvv command, I get this: OpenSSH_6.0p1 Debian-3ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to liamwli.co.uk [] port xxxx. debug1: connect to address port xxxx: Connection timed out ssh: connect to host liamwli.co.uk port xxxx: Co (HowTos)
