I was trying to setup a ssh connection to my pi 2 (model B, i.e., no inbuilt wifi) in headless mode from my ubuntu machine. I do not have a router. After multiple attempts of flashing and tweaking, the following worked,
- Add ssh file in /boot
- Uncommenting the following lines in /etc/dhcpcd.conf
profile static_eth0 static ip_address=192.168.1.23/24 static routers=192.168.1.1 static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 interface eth0 fallback static_eth0
After this it asks for
to which i supplied the default password for rpi
but it keeps saying Permission denied, please try again.for three times after which it closes the connection. I tried this and this, but it would not work. Note that I do not have a windows machine or a hdmi-in enabled screen. I don't remember having this problem in earlier versions of raspbian. I am using 2018-11-13-raspbian-stretch-full.img.
