Secure Shell (SSH)

By default, the Size 3 Linux Tibbo Project PCB (LTPP3) and LTPP3(G2) can accept Secure Shell (SSH) connections to provide a remote command-line interface, which provides nearly the same functionality as the serial console. Coupled with the Web Interface, SSH greatly helps to simplify the management of a remote device.

Connecting to your device

To establish an SSH connection with your device, you'll need an SSH client. There are a plethora of great software options that support SSH, including Tibbo's IO Ninja.

In the options for whichever SSH client you're using, enter the IP address for your device with the default port of 22 and open the connection. A security alert will be displayed on many clients regarding the host key on the device when connecting for the first time. Feel free to allow the client to save the key to its cache to avoid the issue on later connections.

If you do not know the IP address for the device, you'll need to connect to it via the serial console and run ip addr show.

Once the link has been established, you will be asked to log in. If you have not created other users, the root account will be the only option. If you have not changed the default password of 123, we strongly recommend that you do so now through the command passwd root.
