SSH delayed to the point it times out

So I just did a fresh install of garuda switching from windows. I usually just used ssh on windows and it connected pretty much instantly without any issues. However, here when I use ssh, there is basically 0 response, then after some time it just disconnects with connection timed out. I think it might be avahi problem but i am really uninformed in this kind of stuff.

I did try to turn UseDNS to no and editing some config files but nothing really changed

Ig you guys want garuda inxi a lot, so here it is

[IP] is just the IP for ssh, idk if its safe to put it in a public form.

IDK in moment how you use it, please show full command + log next time.


systemctl status sshd.service

If failed use

systemctl enable --now sshd.service

IST moment, was sleeping.

Anyway, the command I used-
ssh -vvv [username]@[IP] -p [Port]

I did what you told me a bit before this post while trying to troubleshoot. And it did create a systemlink instead of an error so i guess it was not created. However ssh still didnā€™t work

here systemctl status sshd.service

Looks good

Status is?
Server is aktiv?
.ssh ok?

Works fine here

Maybe anyone else can help?

I went on testing some other public servers after this and they were now working. Most likely due to that systemctl ssh.service being enabled now.

However some power outage happened when the server owner was sleeping and then some error happened his side. Now he fixed it and I can connect to it again. So it seems that your first reply was the answer.
