Ok, Ive read the other ssh related questions, but cannot seem to find one that matches my exact issue.
Having just built a Pi3 with XBMC and Kodi17.1 (NOOBS installation of XBMC), I tried to ssh into the box to create some custom scripts.
I enabled ssh when the box was built but cannot for any reason log into the Pi remotely. The Pi is assigned a static IP on my home network and is connected via LAN cable to a local switch.
Ive tried from my Linux Desktop and also from my Windows laptop (using Putty).
On both systems I can ping the Pi box, and when using SSH, I am presented with the login prompt (so I can assume the ssh daemon is running), but it doesnt like the username / password.
Ive been attempting to use UID - pi and PASS - raspberry but this has not resulted in a successful connection.
Has anyone tried / succeeded in doing this ?
Should I just abandon the XBMC install and go for a full Raspbian install and run Kodi from cron ?
