Suddenly lost SSH and web acess from OSMC

#1

Hi,

I’ve been using OSMC on my Rpi3 for a few months now and this is the second time this happens (I don’t remember how it was fixed the first time…):

Everything was working up until an hour ago. Out of the blue, I lost SSH access, local server access, Transmission torrent client access, Kore/Yatse android remotes etc… Nothing works from any other computer. This is extremely frustrating! How/why could this happen when it was perfectly fine just a while back and for so long?

Please help out, kind of a RPi noob here!

Thank you.

reboot :slight_smile:

how/why? services can have memory leaks etc… might want to consider activating a watchdog-timer so the PI would reboot in cases of a hang (not garanteed to work in all cases).

Thanks for the response! Of course, the first thing I did was reboot. Reset the wifi* (“forgot” the network then reconnected), multiple times too. But somehow even then still nothing works.

Nothing on screen? Might be your SD-card got corrupt.

My screen works fine. I can see the OSMC interface. But the web server/ssh/transmission all time out.

OK, that wasn’t clear from your initial posting (nothing works). Without remote you probably cannot navigate so connect a keyboard to the RPI and go to the system settings menu to verify you have an IP-address and it is the one you are trying to connect to.

#7

Did you try rebooting the Wifi router? Mine occasionally gets into an odd state where some clients can connect and other can’t.

#8

My router can hand out a new ip to a reserved device sometimes. Check ip in MyOSMC Network

Well, you can still access the command line if you have a spare USB keyboard.

This topic was a long time ago but I also had this problem occasionally so I made a script that sends a ping to my home router. If the ping doesn’t succeed to send for a couple of times then connman service reboots automatically.

It works very well now! Never lost SSH anymore!
