When I try to login via SSH through Putty, the connection is refused. The instance is no longer broken, but I can't login via SSH. I recreated the pair of keys and I'm filling everything correctly in Putty but it doesn't come in at all and I saw in the guide that there's nothing about it. Would you know why this is happening?
