SSH time out. How to connect to a RHEL 8 instance?


I have a fresh RHEL 8 installed on VMWare Workstation 15. Network works fine, I can ping both ways but I can't SSH into RHEL. I do ssh user@ end it's timing out. The SSHD is up and listening on port 22. I can ssh from inside of the machine to another account but never from another host. My question is how to fix it and why logging from outside is disabled by default?

Actually, you cannot ssh your machine wtih any outside host, because the protocol says both machine should be in same network, then only we can ssh or if the machines are live on internet then also you can ssh.
