We have seen a couple of reports of the ssh server being unexpectedly disabled after running updates but have not been able to reproduce it. It’s quite possible that it is a result of all the package reworking that has occurred since Alpha 4 so it should be fixed in the RC.
If you see ssh mysteriously disabled at any point after the RC release please let us know.
Well after see manual and this post (and anothers) i think the bug it’ on latest build RC2.
Network wired not work for me with DCHP or Manually setup.
Network wifi work fine with DCHP, but SSH it’s down or bad setup.
With this, I can’t access without keyboard and screen.
I’m looking for any solution, such:
But not look any solution.
I run my own raspberrypi2 and mount card with OSMC.
I see that ssh it’s not enable on default boot system. With this setup, OSMC it’s not good for people that use RasbperryPi without keyboard and screen (such Apple users for example).
The solution are, create simbolic link on /<path_mounted_osmc_card>/etc/init.d/rc*.d/ to ln -s …/init.d/ssh S02ssh
With this, ssh up at start OSMC. Apreciate ssh service up by default on next releases.
NOTE: Verify problem for ethernet on RaspberyPi2 (work fine for 2 months) with a NOOBS with wired and wifi (DCHP or IP fixed). Try create OSMC with version wired, and not work (either DCHP or IP fixed). Tested with nmap.
I suspect these are due to some local issue on your end. They are not widespread or widely reported as you can see in this forum. SSH has always been enabled by default in OSMC. If it’s not working then there is something strange going on in your system, possibly some file system corruption. Re: the networking issues, this may be due to some network hardware specific config on your network or maybe something to do with the NOOBS install. I suspect a fresh install might resolve most of this.
As @actiona says, OSMC uses systemd so you are looking in the wrong place for service startup scripts. The service unit for ssh is at /lib/systemd/system/ssh.service and as I have repeatedly stated, is definitely enabled by default on a fresh install. Honest. No kidding around.
Are you saying that you first manually configured IP settings in OSMC networking settings, and that you then tried to assign the same IP address using a static reservation on your DHCP server ?
In that case, yes there is a known bug that would cause you to get no IP address if a previous static IP configuration exactly matches a DHCP allocation. This bug is fixed in the latest updates or in RC3.
I have been having trouble with RC3. I found that by uninstalling and then re-installing SSH server I was able to gain access. I am trying to set up a VPN. Beyond thee initial access it stops working and refuses to accept the password (osmc).
It would be great if OPENVPN was installed by default, and run a t boot up. Te resources used would be small but provide a great option for end users.
SSH is enabled by default and nobody has really reported any problems with SSH (maybe 1-2 people) so there is an issue there that needs further troubleshooting on your system.
There’s really no point in us having OpenVPN installed by default - it is still going to need a lot of manual configuration to set it up anyway, sudo apt-get install openvpn really isn’t that hard, and avoids the base system install from becoming too bloated if we throw everything including the kitchen sink in - you’ll notice that Samba is no longer built in like it was in Raspbmc for exactly this reason.
I have OSMC R3 installed a P1 and a Pi2 and cannot ssh into either from my MacBook. I did manage it once on the Pi 2, and installed OpenVPN successfully. Since then I have failed o access either Pi. I am using Spacke, xTerm and terminal problems without success.

This is saying that the client did not send an indenficiation string during the preauth stage - most likely this is an issue with the ssh client. Can you try ssh’ing from a different machine ?
Are you using the command line ssh client in Mac OS or a GUI app ? I just tried an ssh connection from the command line ssh client on a Mac running Yosemite and it connected perfectly:
MacServer:~ dbmandrake$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

I have the same issue.
downloaded OSMC and updated everything and rebooted but I can connect to SSH.
If I use PuTTY I get “Network error: Software caused connection abort”
If I use Bitvise SSH Client I get: “the SSH2 session was terminated with error Reason: FlowSocketReader: Error receiving bytes, Windows error 10054: Connessione in corso interrotta forzatamente dall’host remoto” (sorry for the Italian)
For strange as it could be, I do not have a usb keyboard. Do I have to buy one to solve?
