i have downloaded the Rachel USB file and loaded in to a 32GB usb drive now connected to my RPi.
I'm getting an error message when trying to ssh into the device:
I'm connected via wifi to the moodlebox.
i also tried connecting to the moodlebox whilst on my home wifi which has a similar IP address as the Moodlebox all with no luck.
Can someone help me out please with this ssh issue?
From your screenshot it seems that you can connect to the MoodleBox via SSH, but you type a wrong password.
Check that you type the correct password, either the default one Moodlebox4$ or, if you changed it, the new password you chose.
Thanks Nicolas. That's the odd thing: i haven't changed the passwords. I can connect to the Moodlebox through a browser and log in with the defaults (moodlebox/Moodlebox4$). It's only with the SSH that i get this access denied. Do i have to tuned something on for SSH to work? I'm using putty to ssh into the box (not sure if that matters but trying to give all the info that can help me resolve this).
Nkduodu You should note that the Moodle login and the SSH login can be different. The default settings are the same, but they can be changed independently.
Other issue possible: are you totally certain that in SSH your keyboard types in correctly the dollar symbol (and the others too)?
Noted. Since i haven't made any changes to username or passwords can you tell me if the ssh login is any different from the moodle login? Do i have to be logged into my home wifi network to ssh into the moodlebox or logged into the moodlebox wifi? i have tried both ways and still get the same access denied. Really at a loss with this one.
Nkduodu if the ssh login is any different from the moodle login?
No. Please find all infos here: https://moodlebox.net/en/help/moodlebox-credentials/.
I created anew Moodlebox Image and everything works right. i was able to ssh into the box and add rachel soft link etc.
thanks a lot.
