Connection Timeout for SSH and Virtualmin

OS type and version Ubuntu 20.04
Webmin version 1.984
Virtualmin version 6.17-3

I randomly can’t seem to load Virtualmin or SSH to any of the servers that have Virtualmin (Keep getting “Network Error: Connection Timeout”) even though the servers are serving my hosted (mostly WordPress) websites normally whenever this happens.

The servers are hosted with different providers and on contacting them, they clarified that the servers are up-and-running, pingable and ssh works so I don’t think the issue is with the server/provider but something related to VIrtualmin.

Also, there are idle servers that have Virtualmin with no sites set-up yet but are still giving the same error as well.

What would be the right way to go about fixing this and which log files would be relevant to check for debugging this?

fail2ban might explain that kind of symptoms. Did you have a look into its logs ?

and/or firewall rules.
