Can't SSH into OctoPI

What is the problem?

SSH password denied, even though I can login with a keyboard.

What did you already try to solve it?

Editing the SSHD_CONFIG file to allow passwords

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Hello @diicasses !

From what OS and with what program are you trying to get into OctoPi via SSH?

You might want to search for similar topics, and see if this applies to you:

I am using windows / with putty. I changed the password initially inside of the octopi command with a keyboard from the terminal. I have a lot of experience with Linux and have a few servers for other things which use more complex ssh routing like tunnels or auths. So this is baffling me why it’s not working.

My password works to login from terminal.

Putty ask me to type in my username / password and they’re both correct . But permission denied

What keyboard layout do you have configured on your Windows machine?
