Unable to SSH

I am just starting with linode. I tried to create a compute instance. The creation was successful, however I am unable to ssh into it. But, when I launch the lish console from ui, after that I can ssh from my local machine as well. I am unable to understand the issue.

Any help is appreciated..

There are a handful of reasons that you wouldn't be able to connect to a server using SSH, so I recommend that you review the following Docs Page and Community Post where this has been addressed:

If those are not helpful to regaining SSH connectivity, can you include information about what you have already done and any error messages you have received?

Thanks for your response. I am able to connect now. It seems I have to wait a bit more after booting has finished to connect.
