SSH connection refused

edited March 2019 in Supported devices

Hi Kalkov,

I'm a little bit confused of key sharing with adb and connecting with ssh. Followed the steps on kb how to set up ssh but my connection will be always refused, see below?

could you please give me a hint or advice?



  • Is SSH activated in Settings -> Emteria?

  • Yes, I also did restart the pi to be shure its active.

  • is there an option on the pi (in the emteria.OS) to proof the ssh server is running proberly?

  • So, after i tried with another sd card and the original one with fresh installation, it worked with putty and both of them.

    Wich leads me to the conclusion, that something of the first installation was broken.

    Think the thread can be closed.
