I have a RasPi 3 with a freshly installed OSMC. I’d like to use this as a little home server as
well (perhaps with OwnCloud, NextCloud or Cozy) - otherwise I could have
chosen OpenElec. But this way I definitely need shell access.
I installed OSMC 2016.05-1 from the image via Win32DiskImager; after starting the RasPi,
installation went well, including the WiFi connection. After a few
unspectacular adjustments of the media center surface, I wanted to
connect via SSH.
I configured a PuTTY session and tried to connect, using the standard user and password (osmc). However, after being prompted for the password, there is no reaction anymore, and the connection is terminated.
When I enter a wrong password, I’m prompted again; once the password is correct, the connection breaks down.
The ssh client from my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS netbook can’t login, either; after giving the password, nothing happens anymore.
I managed to put some excerpt from the journalctl sshd log to termbin.
journalctl -u sshd didn’t work (the output was empty), so I took the complete output and preserved all sshd lines and a few more.
I first gave a wrong password (20:41:45), then the correct one (20:41:48).
Could the problem hide in the following final lines?
Jun 21 20:41:48 osmc sshd: Starting session: shell on pts/0 for osmc from 192.168.178.26 port 52907 Jun 21 20:41:48 osmc sshd: debug1: Setting controlling tty using TIOCSCTTY.
I tried a question on StackExchange, but no answers so far.
Which special PuTTY session adjustments do I need?
Or is there some bug in the OSMC version 2016.05-1?
- OSMC 2016.05-1
- PuTTY 0.61, then updated to 0.67
Without ssh access, osmc is of no use for me. I’d need to use 2 RasPis - one for OpenElec, and one for the little home server.
