Debian SSH

I have the latest Debian image 29-04-2012

I have used

sudo service ssh start

to start ssh on my pi.

On my Lubuntu PC

ssh 192.168.1.12

which is the IP address of the Pi

It then asks for a password, which I give as raspberry but is rejected as incorrect.

Any ideas?

What user are you running as on the Lubuntu machine?
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

(One of the best lines I've seen on this board lately)

ssh pi@IP.address

Assuming pi is the username. Else the desktop machine will try ssh'ing using the username that you are logged in with to run ssh.

'man ssh' will tell you more.

Ahhhhh!     I was looking for something complicated. It's always a good idea to have a firm understanding of the basics. All my PCs have the same id and password so the problem has never cropped up before.

Thanks.

That one always catches me out as well. Eventually it will be firmly drummed in. I hope.

Or dummed in, in my case!

Having got a Pi now I realize I only half read all those postings. I really should have made notes as I went along.

Don't worry, this forum has a fantastic search facility.

If you want to, you can change the default user name, among other settings (and set per-host defaults, if you like) in .ssh/config. Very handy if you're connecting to the same machines all the time.

I have a large hardback notebook in which I note everything down. Very useful. Always referring back.

I'm always caught out by stuff just refusing to run under X, including window managers. Nearly always during or straight after an update.

I'm getting it down to under 5 minutes of flapping before I check the filesystem's state of play (I run it tight to encourage me to remove software I don't use anymore - it works too). 10/10 times I've run out of space!

Taking notes from all these posts will surely just lead to a book that's too hard to search ;p
