This error typically occurs due to one of the following common reasons:
Network connectivity issues: check that your internet connection is working. Try restarting your router and verifying with your internet service provider that incoming or outgoing connections on port 65002 are allowed

If you are experiencing unexpected termination of commands or processes after successfully connecting via SSH, it is important to check your Order Usage. This is because each action on SSH utilizes the resources of your hosting plan, and if there are insufficient resources available, the process will fail. To resolve this issue, you can either explore alternative methods to achieve your desired outcome or consider upgrading your hosting plan.
