Ssh process died with exit code 255: Connection timed out

ssh

#1

Hello,

Out of the blue c9 stopped being able to connect to my server. Everything was fine I don’t know what trigger this issue. I’ve checked the other similar threads but they didn’t seem to help much.

Quoted below is the error message

/root/.c9/node/bin/node
ssh process died with exit code 255
ssh: connect to host 139.162.XXX.XXX port 22: Connection timed out
/usr/bin/node
ssh process died with exit code 255
ssh: connect to host 139.162.XXX.XXX port 22: Connection timed out

How can I solve this problem ?

Did this happen on ssh workspace?
If yes try to ssh into your vm and check if /root/.c9/node/bin/node is there and works


#3

Yes, its on ssh workspace and yes I tried, /root/.c9/node/bin/node works

As far as I understand, the error indicates that it is not able to connect to the workspace through ssh, I tried deleting the key file and restoring it again. And ssh on port 22 is working fine and I’m also able to login directly through putty with username and password. So why isn’t it able to connect ? I dont think the ip is blocked because I dont have fail2ban or any such app in my server.


#4

I couldn’t find any additional info in server error logs either.
Cloud9 server is trying to run ssh root@139.162.XXX.XXX -i key which is timing out.
traceroute times out too.


#5

So now what ? It doesn’t timeout when I try accessing with my PC or any other. Why only C9 server ? you think the IP is blocked ? I checked the IPTABLES, nothing in it.

That’s indeed very strange. I don’t know what could cause this.
