ssh resets on connections to external interface.


We notices on Monday that ssh connections to our bastion hosts would fail about 80% of the time. If you did connect, your connection would be stable.

Running tcptrack on the bastion host, I seet the failed connections are showing as "reset".

I've tried patching/upgrading to the latest Ubuntu and SSH versions and the problem has persisted.

I have also verified that we are not even getting close to the max number of ports we can have open on the host.

I have confirmed this by trying to connect to the bastion hosts eternal interface from an EC2 instance in our AWS network and my home system with a similar failure rate. Connecting to the bastions internal interface from another EC2 instance does not have this problem.

Bastion OS: Ubuntu18.04 LTS 5.4.0-1066-aws #69~18.04.1-Ubuntu SSH version: OpenSSH7.6p1-4ubuntu0.6

Anyone know what changed over the weekend and how to fix this problem?

Thanks to whom ever fixed the issue. After two days straight of connection problems, this morning the problem magically cleared up.
