Re: [RPi3] SSH not working via wifi

No. All my earlier attempts had been with PuTTY running on a Windows XP machine. Those attempts failed. My friend happened to be using Windows 10 - and it worked. When I returned home with the RPi I booted a different PC with Windows 10, installed PuTTY and it worked. So, under Windows 10 it works w...

Re: [RPi3] SSH not working via wifi

chrisoh I brought the RPi back home so it is connected to the original router. I have made no changes to the RPi since the update/upgrade this morning. So, it works on a W10 PC, on W10 as a virtual machine under OSX and on Android. It does not work on my XP PC. All other things are equal and unchang...

Re: [RPi3] SSH not working via wifi

I think the problem lies with Windows XP. I took my RPi to a friend's place, he downloaded PuTTY under a Windows 10 virtual machine on his Mac and it worked straight away. It also worked fine from an Android SSH client on a Hudl2. I installed tightvncserver on the RPi and VNC clients on Windows 10 a...

Watch out for red herrings! After almost 40 years testing software and tying bugs down before reporting them to development teams, I think we are there.

Re: [RPi3] SSH not working via wifi

I never tried SSH with a USB wifi dongle on an earlier RPi linked to PuTTY on a Windows PC.

Someone must have done so.

If it worked via a USB wifi dongle then the problem is new and RPi3-related.

Re: [RPi3] SSH not working via wifi

I added:

ipv6.disable=1

to the end of cmdline.txt, shutdown, removed the Ethernet cable, rebooted, checked that WiFi was working and then ran PuTTY on the PC.

Unfortunately the problem is the same. SSH via is Ethernet OK, SSH via WiFi will not accept password.

I would like to apologise to all those who had to wait for two weeks or more for their PiHouses (http://www.ThePiShop.org). I caught up with orders before going to Greece for a couple of weeks (to assist the Greek economy <g>) and on return I was expecting the next batch of parts. For one reason or ...

Nice - but why not get it die cast? Machining is time-consuming and expensive, die casting could produce lots of boxes quickly and at low cost.

Re: Chance to influence PiHouse design

Just been reading that the JTAG connector, P2, isn't really a JTAG connector. https://github.com/dwelch67/raspberrypi/tree/master/armjtag Turns out that most of the usable JTAG lines are available on the GPIO port, P1. No wonder my brain hurts! (For programming we are using the two-wire, high speed,...

Re: Weighted Non-Conductive Mount/Stand

"Slab with a groove"? Another good idea. However, a quick glance at my two (yes, two!) RPis would seem to indicate that this would be hard. The side with the GPIO connectors could go into a groove but the other side is awkward because the HDMI connector is mounted flat down on the board and sticks o...

Gordon Bennett! You are quite right - thanks!

I must have picked it up and rotated it - but why! I reckon the old brain cell is on the way out.

I have added a suitable notice to http://www.thepishop.org/pihousebuild.htm.

Thanks again.
