SSH login failure

Post by VE6TTA » Fri May 01, 2020 4:26 pm

Hi Team.

Thanks for the wonderful software. I'm having a great time running a hotspot now, and have 2 DMR networks up and running!

However i am unable to log in using SSH. I have updated the password, and can log in to the dashboard with my credentials. However using the exact same credentials leads to a login failure every time via the built-in SSH client, and any other SSH client on the network.

I have also attempted logging in with the default password, but it doesn't work either.
Have I missed something somewhere? Why can I log into the dashboard, but not SSH in?

PS - forgot to mention, I am running 4.1.0 with the latest updates on a Pi 3B+ with a simplex MMDVM hat.

Ha! Found the issue.
I read a random line in the following guide that happened to mention that special characters may work for the dashboard login, but not for the SSH login. That was my issue. A ^ was the culprit. Now removed, and SSH access possible.
