I installed RaspBMC and tried the default password for SSH:

  • user pi
  • passwd rasberry

But I'm getting access denied. Does anyone know what the issue could be?

    +1 happened to me the first time I used pi...didn't take long to find the problem though!

  • I had wrote "raspberry" and it hadn't worked. What's wrong?

The default password is raspberry ... you're leaving off the "p".
