Hey,

launched an instance using an Ubuntu 12.04 image. This one: http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/precise/current/precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img

The instance spawns fine, but I have no clue how to log in. I can get into a console via horizon, but I don't know the password for any account.

Based on my research, I'm supposed to ssh into the box like this: ssh ubuntu@10.0.0.3 -i keyfile.pem

The only problem is that when I try to SSH into it, I get this error: Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

Does anyone have any idea what's happenening or where I need to look to troubleshoot the problem?

Thanks.

Did you add a security rule in to allow SSH?

The security group is default, which has a rule to allow SSH. Also, if I simply type: "telnet 10.0.0.3 22" I will get the this: Connected to 10.0.0.3. Escape character is '^]'. SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-5

So the connection can be established to port 22, it's something on the openSSH end on the instance.
