Hello Oluwasegun,

Please check the following:

  • Security group allows incoming traffic on port 22
  • Network Access Control List (NACL) is allows traffic on port 22

More information can be found here:

Do also check If your EC2 instances are launched in the private or public subnets? If they are launched on the private subnets, you can use a bastion host to ssh.

To configure a bastion host, you can follow this link:

Hope this helps!
