Cannot connect to mac as a Xamarin mac agent: An unexpected error occurred while configuring SSH

I have gone through the connection troubleshooting steps on the Xamarin developer site and I'm able to successfully connect from GitBash ssh client as mentioned in step 8. I have checked everything till that step but I am still unable to connect. Below is the Xamarin log:

    I have also tried to edit the UseDNS no solution and I was still not able to connect.

    You're posting in the wrong forum. This is the Xamarin.Mac forum and has nothing to do with the Xamarin mac agent. You should be posting your question in the Visual Studio forum.

    If you have followed the troubleshooting steps documented in the troubleshooting guide, and still have problems, then you should do as the guide states and file a bug report.

    @DaveHunt is absolutely correct. I'll most your post over to the right forum.

    Thanks. I have posted this question in the Visual Studio Forum.

    Seems like there is an issue with my wireless router configuration. I was able to connect via personal hot spot on my mobile device. Does anyone know what are the correct router configurations for the connection to work?
