Log into lish and add the UFW Rule

sudo ufw allow 22

Add any additional ports that need to be allowed too.

Greetings @Rigal,

If you're still having trouble, we recommend logging in via LISH and going through the following Community Post.

To start, run the SSH command verbosely and see where it is breaking:

$ ssh -vv username@ipaddress

Once logged in via LISH, take a peek at your SSH configurations:

$ egrep -i '(password|permit|port|rsa|Allow|Deny)' /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Also, double check the firewall rule LouWestin mentioned with:

$ sudo ufw status

Don't forget to @ us so we get pinged on your response!
