Ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Hi! I’m getting an error, when I try to push/pull anything. The error is:

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I did not change anything on my computer, I still have a valid ssh key in GitLab. I read in some forums that creating or switching between different repositories can help, but didn’t. My colleagues found out that they get the same error message.

Does anyone know if this is an issue of GitLab or should we change something?

A little background: At Friday everything was working. I could push my branch changes smoothly. Coming back to work on Monday, and we are getting this error.


Suddenly, after 30 minutes, it is working. I’m just wondering what was the issue, but very happy it is fixed :smile:.
