How to fix “ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out” for git push/pull/… commands?

For me none of the suggested solutions worked so I tried to fix it myself and I resolved it. I was getting this error on my AWS EC2 UBUNTU instance. I edited the ssh config (or add it if it does not exist).

nano ~/.ssh/config

And I added the following

 Port 443

Then, run the command ssh -T [email protected] to confirm if the issue is fixed.

According to this

Sometimes, firewalls refuse to allow SSH connections entirely. If using HTTPS cloning with credential caching is not an option, you can attempt to clone using an SSH connection made over the HTTPS port. Most firewall rules should allow this, but proxy servers may interfere

Hopefully this helps anyone else who’s having the same issue I did.
