Problem Solved:

I was actually having problem in adding my IP to firewall. The addon_add2apf.cgi subprocess was exiting with status 2.
The solution : I repaired the process in "Check/Repair a Perl Script" section of WHM, Added IP to firewall and everything worked fine now.

Thanks to All.

Hello malikabd,

Thank you for your question. I am glad you were able to get SSH working.

For anyone else who might find this question, and is having trouble connecting to your server with SSH; make sure you have SSH enabled for the account in your WHM.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
