I am trying to access my OSMC machine via my WIN Laptop. I tried to connect via explorer/filezila and Putty but no joy.
I have both SSH and FTP services running and remote control access through 80 is working fine.
Errors I get are either: Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Network error: Connection refused Under normal (passworded)
Connection attempt failed with “ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server”. under anon
If you try, using Putty, and the connection is refused, then you might be trying the wrong IP address, or the wrong username/password, or you might have a local network impediment (firewall, improperly configured router)
Please use the My OSMC log uploader to upload all logs. Without some logs we’re just guessing really - SSH is enabled by default on a fresh install so if it is not running it can only be due to something you have done, or something on your network is blocking the connection.
Had to reflash my SD due to the kernel panic fs block issue. Not sure why it happened so most likely will happen again…
Anyway this time didnt play with overclocking or anything else, I did not install the FTP server…
Success! SSH and FTP are working.
not sure why I still cant connect via windows explorer with ftp:/osmc:osmc@ip
im going to keep it plain vanila for now(too bad quite liked that metropolis skin) and do a LOTR marathon on it. Im 50/50 on whether or not my RPI will survive
