I cannot SSH to my RPi because of this error. I am trying port 22 by default.

Any ideas?


SSh is disabled by default on all new raspbian installs. To enable it you will either need to physically log in and enable it with sudo raspi-config or insert your sd card into another computer and create a file called ssh with no filename extension to enable it on the boot partition. Then make sure it's connected to WI-FI and try again.

  • so my next question is what is the boot partition?? i.e. where do i save this ssh file? Jan 27 '17 at 0:08
  • Thanks. Very bad idea to have SSH disabled by default... :(
