I have a raspberry pi 3 with Debian os and I am unable to connect to it via ssh through VS code.The pi has already been configured and has a username and password.

The raspberry pi shows the message ‘couldn’t find an input interrupt endpoint’ before launching.

Here are the steps I follow:

  1. Enable SSH on the pi and find out its local IP address and connect the pi and the laptop on the same wifi.Delete the SSH folders at C:\Program Data\ and C:<user>\ username\

  2. Install remote SSH in vs code and add new host.

  3. It then asks for the ssh connection command and I enter ssh rpiusername@ipadrress.

  4. It then creates the .ssh file at C:\Users\username.ssh.

  5. The host gets added and then I chose linux as the platform for the remote host.

  6. It asks to continue and then asks for the password.

  7. I enter the password and it gets rejected 3 times.

  8. Finally it says it couldn’t establish connection and permission denied(Public key,password)

Here is what I get in the terminal

  • I am really sorry if i my question seems unreadable because I don't know how to format it. Jul 31, 2022 at 12:45
  • Formatting: for code / text block use curly brackets (e.g. after selecting the text to be formatted

  • Thanks,can you give me any idea on when will I get the answer to my query,its been an hour Jul 31, 2022 at 14:07
  • Are you ACTUALLY using Debian? If so try Raspberry Pi OS. Most of this seems to be about Windows so you are unlikely to get an answer here. Can you login to the Pi with keyboard? Have you tried a normal ssh client? Have you enabled ssh on the Pi - this is disabled by default.

  • You said that you downloaded ssh. Does that include sshd? Is sshd running on the pi?

It looks like the password is incorrect. Are you able to SSH into the Pi and use the same userid and password that you've configured VS Code to use?

  • The password is correct.Initially I had doubts,but then I had changed the password on the pi through raspi-config and its still not connecting to the pi. Jul 31, 2022 at 21:39
  • What is your Raspberry PI's userid? "pi" or "raspberrypi"? VS Code is using "raspberrypi". Aug 1, 2022 at 14:57
  • its raspberrypi Aug 1, 2022 at 22:17
