SSH via expert/dashboard.

Post by G0NMY » Mon Apr 30, 2018 5:15 pm

For some reason I cannot ssh onto my pi via the expert/dashboad path.
it seems to be trying to use port 2222 I can ssh using putty on my laptop but that is via port 22

I havent changed any port options so is it an error that has occurred during an update? I am running the latest version 3.4.12
It has worked in the past so im baffled.
Its not a big deal but I am wondering if others have had/have the same issue?
Here is a screen grab from within the pistar dashboard.

Any help appreciated

cheers Mark

Don't think its update specific, mine seems to be OK here... have you rebooted your Pi-Star?

Hi Andy,
yes I have rebooted but that didnt fix it.
Where is the ssh port configuration held? I am just thinking I could change it to 22 in there?
Or is it supposed to be 2222 for the pi-star web interface to work?
Like I say I can use Putty to log on so its not like im stuck stuck, but I would like the pi-star method to work
for simplicity.

Thanks for you help Andy
:)

the web based SSH is handled by "shellinabox" and it can't live on port 22 (since its not an ssh connection, its a web connection... confusing I know)
Probably shellinabox is screwed, run an

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
If that provides an error (it might) please post it here.

Hi Andy, thanks for your help, I did the update but got no errors and it still didnt work.
So I bit the bullet, downloaded 3.4.11 image onto a new sd card restored my backup config, which at first
didnt work correctly, then I remembered the config was from v3.4.12 so now I am able to ssh in from the console and
ran the update and upgrade all went well. reloaded my saved backup config and all was ok again.
Although for some reason the DMR+ server setting defaulted to a German server instead of UK south.
Anyway soon fixed it, and so far all seems great with the world.
I have no idea why it failed on the old image, but hey dont matter now.

Just want to say thank you for all the work you have put into pi-star.
It has made hotspot configuration a thing of beauty! :lol: :lol:

And I hope you will pass on my thanks to Johnathan G4KLX for all his hard work.
Thanks again!
