Trying to use ssh

Wed May 03, 2017 6:06 am

Hello Colleagues

I have a Macbook air and a Rp3. I am trying to remotely connect my mac to the RP3 with ssh. I keep on having problems which I will detail in the hope that one or more of you can help.

I have successfully got my internet address of my RP3.

Using my Mac terminal I typed in ssh -2 pi

I had already tried ssh -1 pi but was informed Protocol major versions differ:1 vs 2

I was asked for the password and assumed it was raspberry

I was informed permission was denied and asked to try again.

I subsequently tried both my apple password and my internet password but failed each time.

Does anyone know the correct password or how I can find it?

I have to write an article about this so I am really stuck. Please help!

I use:

ssh pi@

You must have enabled ssh on the Pi first by placing a file called "ssh" in the boot FAT partition.

The default password for user pi is raspberry, you should change that.
