I'm trying to connect my rasberry pi through ethernet. I'm using debian 8.9.0.

When i typ the command: ssh -l pi

I get the following error ssh: connect to host port 22: No route to host.

I'm very new to rasberry so i'm not sure what i am doing wrong.


If you are running headless:

  1. Make sure that is the IP address for your Raspberry pi, can you ping

  2. Have you created a file called "ssh" without extension in /boot of the SD-Card?

If you have a screen and keyboard connected

sudo raspi-config

and choose advanced->enable ssh
