I have an old Raspberry Pi 1 Model A that I am trying to fire up for the first time. I followed the Ethernet Gadget tutorial exactly:
- I inserted an SD card into my laptop (MacBook Pro)
- I used Etcher to flash Raspbian Stretch Lite to this card
- On the SD card, post-burn, I then modified the
cmdline.txtfiles exactly the way that gadget tutorial (above) specifies
- I took the SD card out of my laptop and put it into the SD clot on my RPi
- I powered my RPi on by taking a USB A-to-MicroB cable, and plugging the "A end" into my laptop, and the "MicroB" end into the Micro USB port on my RPi. I can confirm that I do see the red "
PWR" light on the RPI board.
- I login to my router's UI and confirm that I don't see any wired connections to my router; this is correct as of this point there shouldn't be any.
- I connect my RPi to my router via Ethernet cable and wait a few mins
- I refresh my router login screen and I do see my RaspberryPi showing up as a wired connection
- I open up a terminal on my Mac and try to SSH in, but am getting errors (see below).
Here's a picture of my setup:
You can see:
- The gray Ethernet cable between my router and my RPi
- The black power cable (USB) between my laptop and my RPi (the red power light is lit up on the board in the top right corner)
- The SD card is plugged into the USB-SD adapter, and that adapter is plugged into the USB port on my RPi
So for SSH, first I try:
ssh email@example.com ssh: connect to host raspberrypi.local port 22: Connection refused
So no dice. Then I try the same but with
192.168.0.14 (which is my pi's IP address, according to my router):
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.14 port 22: Connection refused
To me this means the RPi is either not starting up correctly, or has a firewall (
ipconfig) issue, or that something is wrong with
sshd on the pi. Any ideas as to what my next step for troubleshooting is?
