Hi. For some reason I can no longer SSH into my RetroPie installation (2.3) , nor the new 2.6 image I’ve installed on a separate card.
I have tried Googling this, but tbh the results have been rubbish. Does anyone know why this would suddenly have stopped working and what I can do about it?
I know my Wifi dongle is working as I download updates on the Pi using it, and I’m definitely entering the correct IP address into Putty / WinSCP.
Any help would be much appreciated :)robertybobParticipant02/20/2015 at 01:01Post count: 219
Also, I have not assigned a static IP.. and the reason why Googling is pointless is that the things that worked for other people can’t work for me
editing /etc/xinetd.d/ssh < doesn’t exist in RetroPie (?)ChosenParticipant02/20/2015 at 03:53Post count: 8
what client are you using to connect, are you getting any error message?assaultParticipant02/20/2015 at 08:00Post count: 10
….mmh sounds weired, I would suggest to start with some basic diagnostics.
please log on your retropie and paste here the output of those two commands:
on your notebook / desktop pc please download and start Angry-IP-scanner
(a nice little tool im using to discover my intranet ;) )
or just try to ping the IP of you retro pie and tell us the resultFloobMember02/20/2015 at 23:14Post count: 1629
Have you tried connecting to hostname RETROPIE as opposed to an IP?robertybobParticipant02/21/2015 at 00:19Post count: 219
Hiya, thanks for the replies.
I’ve tried using Putty and WinSCP to connect but they come back with Timeout errors.
I don’t know how to connect using just a hostname with those two programs , could you tell me how?
I can ping Google
and my Pi is picked up using Nmap (a network scanner tool)but attempting to ping the Pi results in a timeout error message too. I’m beginning to think, as it works perfectly fine via LAN, that it’s a router issue :(assaultParticipant02/23/2015 at 13:49Post count: 10
how do you connect with puty ?
your config should look like:
[firstname.lastname@example.org.XXX (<- The pis IP-Adress shown in Nmap)]
[ ]raw [ ]telnet [X]SSH
when you leafe the rest on default options, that should it be…
please could you descripe more detailed what you mean with
… as it works perfectly fine via LAN, that it’s a router issuesselphParticipant02/23/2015 at 14:22Post count: 170
My assumptions from reading the previous posts. If they are wrong let me know.
- SSH works when you have a wired connection
- SSH doesn’t work over a wireless connection
- The wireless device can access the internet
- You can’t ping the pi over a wireless connection
Is the computer attempting to connect to the pi wired or wireless?
Things to Check:
You can try checking your routers settings. Some routers are able to isolate each wifi client from each other and the lan. Look for something mentioning isolation.allaboutcodeorgParticipant02/23/2015 at 20:14Post count: 2
Hi All About Code Here,
1. Press menu (you selected this during setup)
2. Select exit from the list
3. Type sudo raspi-config into console
4. Select Advanced Options
5. Scroll down and select A4 SSH
6. Enable SSH
7. Select Finish to return to command lineRetroMarineParticipant02/23/2015 at 20:48Post count: 153
I’ll bet you’re having the same problem I had at one point…double check your inet address for the pi you are using…they change!robertybobParticipant02/24/2015 at 10:55Post count: 219
I’ll have a go at all of your suggestions tonight and report back :)robertybobParticipant02/25/2015 at 00:42Post count: 219
Please see image below
(I installed LXDE and can’t figure out how to stop the Pi booting to the graphical log-in screen- but I’m not worried about that at the moment lol).
these are my PuTTy settings
and this is the error message I receive
The assumptions Selph made were correct, if I connect this Pi to my router via LAN, I can SSH successfully.
I have scanned using Angry IP Scanner and it didn’t pick up my Pi :(sselphParticipant02/25/2015 at 02:04Post count: 170
Is the windows machine on wired or wireless?
Are the wired and wireless router the same device?
What is the ip of the windows machine?
Is the pi connected to any kind of guest wireless network?
Do you have issues connecting to/from other devices on the wireless network?
Traffic doesn’t seem to be passing to/from the windows machine and the pi. My thinking is they are isolated somehow, either physically or logically.
If your access point and wired router are different devices and you have different subnets, you’ll want to switch your wireless router to bridge mode and disable its DHCP server.
If they are the same device your router may be have some option to disable isolation or bridge the two networks
