Authentication failure while logging in to cluster

Hi,

I was trying to ssh to discovery but ended up entering the wrong password multiple times. Now I can’t ssh from the terminal or connect via FileZilla. It always gives me an error saying ‘Received disconnect, too many authentication failures’. Is there a way to resolve this?

Thanks

Try resetting your password here: https://netid.usc.edu/account_services/forgot_password

If you have too many authentication failures within a short period of time, we block your username temporarily. You should be able to try again in a few hours. In the meantime, you can also use a different hostname.

Thanks. It was a temporary block. I was able to connect about an hour after this happened.
