Cannot SSH to Lightsail instance via AWS Console. Port 22 is open.

As in title, I am trying to connect to my instance and it simply says "connecting to instance..." and stays there. I've rebooted and also re-created the instance. Any advice?

I solved it by using an incognito window, which is similar to the previous answer of deleting cookies. AWS has a lot of issues where you can't even access Lightsail at times due to cookies. So just make sure you delete all cookies or try an incognito window.

  • I used the browser 'Opera'. Their built in VPN solved my problem after many hours of searching.

Hello

If you are not able to ssh from the SSH Client you can try from the browser,.

I am only using the browser within Lightsail.

In fact, the problem is account wide. None of my other instances let me connect, and I even tried to create a brand new instance with no data, and even after creating that I couldn't connect.

I think this is an actual Lightsail issue. I've tried different new instances in different regions with different OS or control panels, and I cannot SSH to any of them using the Lightssail connect interface. How do I get Lightsail/Amazon to look at it?

I cannot connect my instance too. SSH client within Lightsail. There is no response with "Connecting to your instance".

In my case, I was able to connect by deleting Cookies (Chrome).
I don't know the cause, but when I couldn't connect, I was getting the following Websocket error in the console log.

WebSocket connection to 'wss://connect-ap-northeast-1.lightsail.aws.amazon.com/ls/websocket-tunnel?~~~~~~~' failed: 
connect @ bundle_vendors.e57657528586c6d4cd3d.js:2

Please open your lightsail console with browser traceless mode.

Same here. I connected to Lightsail and for about 5 or 6 hours later I cannot access it. I use terminal.
I have to stop the instance and start it again. However, this will change the ip address and this is not a solution.

Finally Figured out the issue, by creating another instance & was trying to replicate my issue that is: "ssh: connect to host x.x.x.x port 22: Operation timed out". on my lightsail instance.

Why I am unable to connect to the instance via SSH is that I did turn on the UFW in my ubuntu instance by typing sudo ufw enable, that is the main mistake I made, after doing this when I tried to connect my instance again via same steps, I was unable to connect.

The solution is, whenever we turn on the ufw, we must allow ufw with port 22, by running the command sudo ufw allow 22
