Beginners Guide: Locating your board, connecting to it.

Connecting to your board via SSH



How you connect via SSH depends on what OS you are using as a client (the device you want to SSH From). The server in this case is the Rock 64 Board. 

The username/password of the Rock64 OS will depend on which OS you've downloaded and flashed:

Windows:

If you use Windows, it doesnt have an SSH client, you'll need to download one to SSH into the Rock 64. 

Here is one example:

However, for step 2, you'll need to insert the IP address of the Rock 64 ou found in the previous post: In this example it was 192.168.1.128. Yours will likely be different. 

You should have it looking somewhat similar to this:

Click on "Open" to start initiating a SSH connection. You might get a warning message about a RSA key.

Its not important at this stage, since it is over a local connection and you have physical access to the hardware. Accept the connection. 

Once you accept the connection, you'll be prompted to insert a Username/Password. This depends on the OS image you downloaded, its available on the Wiki Link. In My case, the image is the "Xenial Mate" image, so the username/password is rock64/rock64. Its normal to not see the password being typed in, this is a security feature.

If everything goes well, you should now be logged into your Board, and the display should look something like this:

That means you're in and you can issue commands and communicate with your board via SSH! 


Mac OS:

I dont have a Mac OS device to test this out on, but the process is much more simpler on Mac OS and Linux than windows.

In this scenario, the string:


Code:
ssh username@ip.address
 

Would look like

Code:
ssh rock64@192.168.1.128


Again, this depends on which Image was downloaded and what the IP address is.




Linux:


Very similar to the MacOs guide. Open your favourite terminal emulator installed in your distro and enter the credentials and thats all there is to it!
