Hi! I'm willing to help here.
Where are you trying to connect from? Seems like you are using the private IP instead of the public, which won't work from home by default.

Kindly follow the article here to login https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/doc-detail/25434.htm , additionally make sure you are trying to login to an internet accessible IP if you are trying to login from your HOME network and Port 22 is enabled with correct whitelisting.

Let me know if you still run into any issue.

Hi Damain777, depending on the OS you created, you can specify a password when you first create your ECS instance.  For example, Windows would have given you an option to enter the Administrator password.  For Linux, you may have used the SSH key-pair option and would have received a download for a .pem file to connect via SSH.  The password in this case would be encrypted in the .pem file.

If your local machine is running Windows OS, you can use a remote connection tool, such as PuTTY, to connect to a Linux instance. In this article, we use PuTTY as an example to describe how to connect to a Linux instance by using the password authentication method. Before you start, download PuTTY.
Follow these steps to connect to a Linux instance:
  1. Start putty.exe.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Session, and configure the following parameters:
    • Host Name: Type the public IP address or EIP address of the instance.
    • Port: Type 22.
    • Connection Type: Select SSH.
    • (Optional) Saved Session: If you do not want to repeat the configurations during the next logon, add a name for the session, and click Save.

  • Click Open to connect, and in the PuTTY Security Alert dialog box, click Yes.
    Note For the first connection to an ECS instance, you have the PuTTY Security Alert as follows, which means PuTTY cannot guarantee the instance is the one that you think it is, so it can only provide the public key fingerprint of the instance for you to decide to trust the instance or not. If you select Yes, the public key will be added to the PuTTY’s cache and you will not be alerted again during your next connection. If you select Yes but are alerted again, a man-in-the-middle attack (MITM) may occur. For more information, see PuTTY User Manual.

  • Enter the user name and password for the Linux instance, and then press Enter.
    Note The password is not displayed on screen.

  • If you are successfully connected to the instance, the following message is displayed.
