Server active but SSH problem

Well this problem is solved. I believe It was due to my old Putty client. Updated to Putty 0.64 and now it works.

Sorry, this thread should have been posted in the Sys forum I think

Servers from the 2013 ranges and forward include KVM/IP. You can also try with that to access without needing to reboot your server.

reboot your server in rescue mode, login and mount your root (/) partition.
look for /var/log/secure and paste the last few rows here.

* if you have another access to this log file (for ex. control panel like cpanel) you don't have to reboot to rescue mode.

No , can't find anything wrong there either.

Just found the SSH key page. I guess this is what I'm missing. Reading.....

And the putty error:
server unexpectedly closed network connection

I just installed my server and the SSH port is active but when using putty it just disconnects. Tried different settings, is there some description of putty settings somewhere?

OS: Ubuntu Server 14.04 "Trusty Tahr" LTS (64bits)

Appreciate any help please
