Setting up SSH over wifi with new Raspberry Pi Zero. I installed an Edimax wifi adapter, ran
raspi-config to enable ssh, and edited
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf in the same way as I have done with 4 Raspberry Pi Model B+ units currently in my network.
The Zero boots up with a pingable wifi address (configured as static).
The Zero is refusing an SSH connection: when I attempt from Putty I immediately get:
network error: software caused connection abort
Tried the Putty connection from another windows host with the same result. When I attempt from another pi (
ssh username@ip_address) I get:
Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer.
The error is immediate, and happens every time. There are no firewall or router issues; these are all on one subnet (other SSH sessions to Pis are on wired network, not wifi).
I am sure SSH is enabled (
ps aux | grep sshd) and listening on port 22 (
netstat -plant | grep :22).
I can ping this new pi over wifi, but can't establish the SSH session. Is there some limitation to the Pi Zero I don't know about? Or problems with SSH over wifi?
The only thing different about this Pi (other than it's a zero) is that it only has access to the local network via wifi.
EDIT: I have the latest JessieLite distribution 2017-03-02.
