SSHMaster Connection Reset

I am relatively new to StarCluster and EC2, though I have been able to
successfully configure an AMI based on the StarCluster HVM Ubuntu v13
image and have upgraded it to 14.04 LTS. With this I have been able to
successfully launch a small test cluster of 2 nodes:

>>> Configuring cluster took 1.848 mins
>>> Starting cluster took 3.567 mins

The cluster is now ready to use. To login to the master node
as root, run:

    $ starcluster sshmaster smallcluster

Though when I go to ssh into the master in order to access the cluster, I
get the following error:

stephen_at_GTC-Charlotte-Ubuntu:~/.ssh$ starcluster sshmaster smallcluster
StarCluster - ( (v. 0.95.5)
Software Tools for Academics and Researchers (STAR)
Please submit bug reports to

Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

I don't quite understand the cause, though I suspect it is a permission
error. I am using a key that I generated through "starcluster createkey".
 Is there something in the configuration file that I'm missing? Thanks in
