I tried the last suggestion, and the server fails to come up (Network Connection time out error) when I try to login via the putty (ssh).

--- Post updated at 05:15 PM ---

I tried this solution, however after I make the changes and restart ssh, I am unable to login to the server (Network Connection time out error).

When system admins make sshd config changes to a remote server they do not logout of their working session before they confirm the changes work..

For example, if you are logged into a server and make changes to sshd, you do not log out of that session.

server:/var/www/ads# ssh's password: 
Last login: Thu May  9 08:14:30 2019 from
me@remote:~$ sudo -i
[sudo] password for me: 
// make changes to ssh configation
remote:~# service sshd restart

You are still logged to the remote server.

Now try to ssh again from another terminal.

Or alternatively, you can run sshd on another port with another configuration file, for example on some (linux) systems;

sshd [-46DdeiqTt] [-b bits] [-C connection_spec] [-f config_file] [-g login_grace_time] [-h host_key_file] [-k key_gen_time] [-o option] [-p port] [-u len]

So, it is not really wise, or at least it is not how I would make sshd changes, to make changes in your config without testing them first.

sshd  [-f config_file]  [-p port]

You can run and test sshd on any open port you like.

I tried this solution, and I did not log out from session where I made the changes before opening a new session.
But it still does not work. I cannot ssh into the server anymore. "Network Error: Connection Refused" error.
