I have for weeks now tried to ssh into my RPI zero, and I cannot figure out what is wrong here. I've been using this guide https://desertbot.io/blog/ssh-into-pi-zero-over-usb.

The installation finished without problems but every time i ssh into the RasPi, nothing happens. It just stalls.

What might i be doing wrong?

    On the tutorial you have linked, there are seven steps to setup. Please tell us what step fails.

  • None of the steps fails... All goes well, until i Ssh to the pi.. It just stalls... nothing happens. It doesn't say that it cannot find the pi either? Apr 15 '19 at 22:22
  • Please edit your question and insert the exact ssh command you are using.

  • If it just stalls it sounds like the raspberry.local domain isn't resolving. Are you using a Windows or OS X host? If you're using Windows, I think you'll need to install something from Apple to enable it. See learn.adafruit.com/… for more detail.

Make sure that in the BOOT partition there is a file called ssh. Just "ssh", not "ssh.txt". Make sure the pi is finished booting before you ssh too. If you are using windows, download this and run the setup wizard first. It is called "print services" but it lets your computer recognize other computers, which windows has a problem with.
