I’m new to nginx and am trying to load-balance ssh sessions to an autoscaling group of ECS instances in AWS.

Having trouble getting my config files right. I don’t get any errors on startup, but my access.logs shows this lines for each attempt and the command line gives me this :

ssh ec2-user at

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Access.log: - - [31/Jul/2015:15:54:15 +0000] "SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.2" 400 173 "-" "-" "-" - - [31/Jul/2015:16:25:31 +0000] "SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.2" 400 173 "-" "-" "-" - - [31/Jul/2015:16:34:31 +0000] "SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.2" 400 173 "-" "-" "-"

Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jerry
