    I am moving accounts from old WHM server to new WHM server using Home »Transfers »Copy an Account From Another Server.

    But I click Check SSH Connection:, an error saying "Connecting to Remote Server Failed: Unable to connect to old.server.com:PORT: Connection timed out"

    I made sure that hostname and Port number are correct.

    How can I check that my new server can connect to the old one using SSH?
    Is there a settings on the old server that I need to edit?

    Thanks.

    I was able to complete the transfer now.

    I am not sure what fixed it but here's what I did:

    1. On sshd_config, set UsePAM to NO
    2. Added SSH ports on CSF
