Are you sure that you have enabled SSH?

You can check if SSH is running by running the following in a terminal

sudo service ssh status

Here are 3 methods to enable SSH

Preferred method if running under Raspbian desktop

  1. Launch Raspberry Pi Configuration from the Preferences menu
  2. Navigate to the Interfaces tab
  3. Select Enabled next to SSH
  4. Click OK

Using a terminal (IE: No desktop available)

  1. Enter sudo raspi-config in a terminal window
  2. Select Interfacing Options
  3. Navigate to and select SSH
  4. Choose Yes
  5. Select Ok
  6. Choose Finish

Alternatively, use systemctl to start the service if the above 2 options do not work, however I would really recommend the above 2 options, before this method.

  1. sudo systemctl enable ssh
  2. sudo systemctl start ssh
