I cannot connect to my compute instance using ssh even though the public key was installed on the VM

I created my VM and installed my ssh public key. However, I am not able to ssh to my public IP address. Not sure why.

Content (required):

When the VM was created, I cut and pasted the ssh public key in the box given. After that, I took at the public IP provided by the running instance and attempted to ssh to it. I tried ping'ing the IP and no response (possible that ICMP ports are disabled). However, when I ssh, it hangs and does not display anything nor fail. Is this because of a routing issue?

I have tried connecting to this site internally from Oracle and without VPN from my home. I am more interested if I can connect to my compute instance from internal Oracle. Any ideas?

Howdy, Stranger!
