I just want to share a peculiar sftp connectivity issue that we encountered recently.
This is the message we got when trying to connect to the server using sftp
Status:Connecting to mydomain.com... Response:fzSftp started, protocol_version=8 Command:keyfile "somefile.ppk" Command:open "email@example.com" 22 Error:Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity Error:Could not connect to server
We usually connect to my remote server using sftp to upload and download the work files.
All was well till yesterday, when suddenly, the connectivity to the server was not happening.
We distinctly remember being able to connect till sometime back, before the above error cropped up suddenly.
We were breaking our heads as to why the connection was not happening.
Rolled back in time and evaluated the things that we did during the past hours. It was suddenly that we got a brainwave that solved the problem.
