VS-Code Remote SSH: failed to set up socket – other clients are ok?

I am trying to connect to my shared server via VS Code Remote-SSH, but get the timeout error every time with the below error message. This error only occurs with VS Code Remote-SSH, when using another client (Putty, Termius) the connection works just fine.

Please note: this is a shared server where I have SSH access, but no sudo privileges and connect via port 1394. Also, the error notification popup ultimately says Could not fetch remote environment. Since its working well in Putty, my best guess is that there are some settings in VS-Code I need to adjust. Appreciate any insight.
