Hi, sorry to ask a noob question here, but I was updating my website using rsync and otherwise experimenting with ssh connections to, when I suddenly started getting the following error:

~$ ssh
ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer

I saw when searching the forums that this is not a new problem, but is there a solution better than "wait until the problem is fixed on the server end"?

Thanks for being patient with a noob.

Hi Tim,

One place to always check first is our status page at [url][/url] - we occasionally have to take systems down briefly for maintenance/updates, so it's possible you may have been trying to transfer files during one of those times. If you'd like us to take a closer look at any issues with, I recommend sending an email to Please be sure to include your username, a brief description of the problem, and the rough time/date it most recently occurred.
