Cannot login to my pi via Putty...

Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:26 pm

Hello everyone!
I have been trying to login with putty and even though i seem to have intalled rasbian correctly and seem to have done everything correctly it will not let me connect.

I login as "pi" and use the password "raspberry" . I have used all the different ips available and the problem isnt solved :/

Have you enabled ssh?

Pull the plug, pull the SDCard. Insert the SDCard in your Windows system and create F:\ssh.txt on it. Eject it safely, put it back in your RPi. Boot the RPi and it will automagically enable ssh for you.

Presumably so, else the target would not be connecting and requesting login credentials as shown in the screenshot...


@viral666 - how did you determine that 192.168.obscured.obscured was the appropriate IP address for your RPi?

Maybe the system you are failing to log in to is not actually your RPi? That would explain the rejected login. pi:raspberry is correct for an unmodified installation of Raspbian.

Remember some people mis-spell "raspberry" as "rasberry"...

Irrelevant.

Nothing to do with your interactive login details being rejected.

Hi viral,

Please humour me by trying this:
- Connect directly to your Pi
- Start Terminal
- Type: passwd <Enter>
- Type: raspberry <Enter>
- Paste what comes up into your next post.
- After that, if you are not back to the command prompt, you should be able to get there by pressing Ctrl-D a couple of times.

This should tell us if your password is what you think it is. Then we can tell you how to change it if you don't already know how.

Technically, yes I do mean that Dirks, although I had hoped it was obvious, and just added the spaces for clarity, but it may not be obvious to some, and my "clarity" could backfire, so good point.
Thanks.
