Sorry if this sounds redundant to you but trust me its not. I have tried almost majority of the links related to this problem but nothing is working for me so far. I even tried this article two. Below is what I have tried so far
- Permission of the keys 400 as well 600
- ubuntu as the username because its the Ubuntu 14.04
- IP is correct and I even tried public dns as well
- Key is attached to the instance
- AWS Java client (MindTerm) using FireFox browser. But it gives error after i press enter when it shows me this line against my IP. Even if I get lucky it would just ask username which i give ubuntu and then it exits giving error "I/O error - read failed: unknown error" or either just take me back to the IP step.

The last thing I did before this issue was that 2 days ago I was trying to install the FTP server on my client using this link http://www.krizna.com/ubuntu/setup-ftp-server-on-ubuntu-14-04-vsftpd/. Unfortunately this link didnt work as expected and I ended up with no success in FTP logins. And today when I tried to login using my keypair its giving me error.
Below is the log for my ssh attempt
