I am setting up DDNS for my Rashberry Pi to access from anywhere, followed the instruction

All seems good after setup, but I cannot access Rashberry Pi with ssh

My command in terminal:

ssh [email protected]

I type the pi's password, but it replies "Permission denied"

Any suggestion is appreciated.

    And you have enabled ssh? It is disabled by default in more recent versions of Raspbian.

  • I have no error of ssh with the router IP, ssh [email protected] (which point to Rashberry Pi). But I recieved "Permission denied" with hostname (no-ip) Commented Sep 6, 2017 at 7:45
  • Maybe try to run it with sudo in front.

  • @Flajt You don't need special permission to run ssh.

Since you arrive at the password prompt, DDNS's part is over - the ball is in your court.

Can you copy-paste here a verbatim example of what you are doing in the terminal?


You have to forward port 22 on your router
