    I get that too from the Java SSH terminal in the control panel.

    And I thought it was just because my SSH is on a non-standard port. Looks like the Java SSH terminal is probably broken for everyone.

    If you can't connect externally via Putty, send them a trouble ticket. SSH should work out of the box on a new VPS install.

    if you have tried to connect straight after you purchased your vps i assume you remembered to install an operating system?

    Ok so, I have re-isntalled my VPS and it sayed it showed it was done after the page refreshed instantly, and showed the VPS started, but still the same problem, i have NEVER been able to login to my VPS via ssh period, I have not heard back from Tech Support, will want a FULL Refund monday if no reply.

    Funny thing is i used them once before for a month or 2 last year.

    a month ago vpslink was taken over by a new company, and the new company has less than adequate support so sadly nothing is the same as last year
    you can pm Matt@VPSLINK and he can get tech support onto it a bit quicker aswel

    John4767, were you trying a straight Putty ssh connection to port 22 on your VPS?

    I can't believe that don't work. Normally it is the simplest thing, as long as you have your username, password and port right.

    I had similar problem about, due broken udev configuration. Don't ask which is the relation between udev and SSH, I only know the local admin fixed that probably accessing the VPS using `xm console`.
    After the recent migration I had again the same problem, but it seems actual administrator don't know `xm console` and just replies me he also cannot access SSH port :-\

    from what i was told when i rang for tech support they stupidly have 1 person that is a vps specialist and no one else knows how to fix vps issues...which is kinda scary really
