SHH conection problem

Hey there everyone.

Im quite new to the Linux world. So i am currently doing the Hackbox tasks. I am quite in the begining.

Recently became with a problem to conect via SSH.

I already downloaded the vpn conection and was able to run in my vm. After that i went to another Terminal window and tried to run the shh comand with the information such: username and ip.

For the following help, i was able to do a -v in front of shh to see what went wrong, thats was i recived:

Can anyone help me or sugeest something?


Searching for “expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_ECDH_REPLY” in Google lead me to this solution :
Change the MTU of the VPN interface doing so : sudo ip li set mtu 1200 dev your_interface
If you type “ip a” in your terminal, you’ll see the list of all your network interfaces. mtu should be set by default at 1500, try lowering it down and see what happens.
