Cannot connect using ssh


While trying to test SSH connection from my newly installed Ubuntu machine (Bare metal) to I get the following:

egroj97@tuf-ubuntu:~$ ssh -T
client_loop: send disconnect: Broken pipe

I've made sure three times that the SSH key works, and was able to connect to

Any ideas?

Hi @egroj97 and welcome to the community.

Are you getting this error consistently when you try to test the SSH connection, or is it intermittent?

There is a possibility this error may be occur due to a firewall on your network. We've had a report on a similar issue where snort was used and a certain rule was blocking the connection. Are you using snort in that network?

This may also be caused by the issue mentioned in this blog post:

In order to test this, could you try connecting to Bitbucket legacy IP addresses and see if this works?

You can try e.g.

ssh -T git@

Kind regards,
