I am new to Pi and using the command line.

I am trying to set up my Pi headless connected to my iPhone hotspot, I have downloaded the Raspberry Pi Imager on to SD card and used it to enable SSH and set the Wi-Fi I want it to connect to.

I can see it's connected to my hotspot, but when I try to ssh into it I get this error and since I am quite new to this I am not sure what it means.

C:\Users\Bea>ssh [email protected] -p 22
kex_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset

C:\Users\Bea>ssh -v [email protected] -p 22

I know there is some questions similar to this on here but I did not really understand the answers as everyone is using sudo to edit the host allowed and denied but how can I do this if I am headless and cannot ssh into the Pi?

Hopefully this has provided enough information but I can edit the question if more is needed.
