Sun Feb 14, 2016 4:40 am

Hi,
I just installed jessie OS. when I open terminal, it shows [email protected] I assume that pi is user name, and it did not ask me for password.

now I use putty try to login to my pi, my raspberrypi IP is 192.158.0.45 so type Host Name as [email protected]

but it ask me for password. what is the password for this?

thanks
Lxw

Default User is pi
Default password is raspberry
English is not my mother tongue, so I might do some grammatical error , please understand , thank you.

What do you mean by both?
The default password is 'raspberry', all lower case. You will not see any output when entering the password.
Are you using a qwerty keyboard?

To be clear for anyone reading this six months later, and if I'm wrong I'm sure I'll be corrected, but it's:

ssh [email protected]

You will then be prompted for a password which is:
raspberry

If you have problems, try ssh -vvv [email protected] to see all the back and forth messages as ssh tries to connect. Fewer -v mean messages are more focused on what is likely to be important.

That will work only on *nix systems with avahi installed, won't work on windows unless you install the Apple Bonjour service. (And you were right about someone not really correcting you, but giving additional information :) )

i bought the raspberry as used one. on a new sd card installed rasbian and connected to my laptop with ethernet cable. connected to pi with putty.

then it asked for "login as:" (entered) pi
[email protected] 169.254.xxx.xxx's password: (entered) raspberry
Access denied

tried raspberrypi as well, but its not working.
is the username password bound to OS or the device memory (like EEPROM)?
(i feel its bound to OS), but reformating (low level format, then FAT32) and re-writing rasbian didn't work either
help me I'm going nuts over this.

PS: access to a hdmi monitor is kinda difficult, so gotta use only putty

Hi, in the lastest raspbian image, the SSH is disabled by default:

How can that possibly be relevant to anything?

OP says he was prompted for password - if SSH server were not running, you would not get prompted for password.

Edit: OP says he is using Putty - but doesn't state which OS he is using it on (from). It may well be that under certain circumstances, using certain versions of Putty on certain OSes, it would prompt you even if the target machine isn't running the SSH server.

My experience is to the contrary - usually if the server isn't running, I never get to a password prompt.
If this post appears in the wrong forums category, my apologies.
