I'm baffled! I have two raspberry pi 3's and two windows 10 computers on a local network. IP addresses are, for the RPi's and and for the two Windows 10 machines. From windows I am able to ssh into but not I can ssh into and then ssh from there into

To clarify, when I attempt to use Putty to log into from Windows10 it opens a window but no prompt for user/password.

Same thing with ping. Here is output from windows:


Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from Destination host unreachable.

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 1, Received = 1, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

and from the RPi:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=9.24 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=7.63 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=5.50 ms

Anyone have any insight?


First, try : #sudo service ssh restart on the second Pi. Then try again.
Second, try to compare the SSH contents from both Pi via /etc/ssh to check if the no.2 Pi different from the no.1.

By the way, it's kinda weird if you cannot ping to the Pi, you already turned off the Firewall, didn't you ??? You can check if your Windows 10 PC can see those Pi via Angry IP Scanner.

  • I tried rebooting everything but found the fix was when I rebooted my router. Not sure what the root cause was but I will be replacing my router for a number of other reasons. – Keith Gilman Jul 10 '17 at 13:28
  • When suggesting things to 'try', it kinds of makes things a comment, not an answer, FYI. – stevieb Feb 3 '19 at 23:57
  • @KeithGilman Because you fixed the problem with rebooting your router please make an answer about it and accept it after two days. Only this will finish the question and it will not pop up again for years. – Ingo Feb 1 at 12:23
