A colleague has OSMC set up on a Raspberry Pi, and a few months ago they reset the ssh password for user osmc. Unfortunately they’ve now forgotten what that password was, so can it be reset either via the GUI or some other way please?
They are using ssh osmc@ip but both the default pass and what they thought it was set to doesn’t work anymore.
I’m having difficulty using PuTTY to SSH into my Pi. After entering my password it said “Access Denied”. So I followed the steps here and successfully changed my password and then tried to log in again and once again got “Access Denied”.
SSH server is running, I’m only failing after it asks me for a password.
Currently running the latest version Kodi 16.1.
This was the only two explanations I could arrive at also, but I checked and double checked the IP address. Plus if I had the wrong address I wouldn’t be able to get as far as I was getting with PuTTY whereby it was then requesting the password.
As for the password, I had only just entered (and re-entered) the new password and I kept it simple with lowercase “osmc”
I have a keyboard I can connect to the Pi. What do you suggest?
