[Guide] How to get SSH working

This is what worked for me:
sudo apt install openssh-server
To make sure it is running:
sudo service ssh status
to quit:

Now, in order to config it:
sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

There should be a configuration area called GSSAPI options that looks like this:

# GSSAPI options
#GSSAPIAuthentication no
#GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes

Change that to uncomment the line that reads GSSAPIAuthentication no, the result will be:

# GSSAPI options
GSSAPIAuthentication no
#GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes

Now please restart the service:
sudo service ssh restart

Go to settings-wlan-click the blue I next to your network and get your tablets IP address.

Plug into your PC and type " ssh (username)@ip address."

For me that looks like “ssh Glockdoc@198.1`62.1.11” your username is what is in front of “@JingOS” in the terminal.

Type yes

Enter your tablet password.

Now you can type commands on your pc screen and keyboard and have them execute on your jingpad and still do other things on the tablet.

Type exit when you are done.

If you don’t want to use nano try this:
sed -i 's/#GSSAPIAuthentication no/GSSAPIAuthenication no/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Keep it simple! I like it!

Howdy… Im running jingos 1.2 on a jingpad a1/c1. Trying also to allow incoming ssh. Im wondering if there is a firewall disallowing incoming connections. I did the above listed stuff and also uncommented # Listen for good measure, restarted service. Im getting a host unavailable error.

This is the setup

Computer <===> Jingpad

-I can ping Computer from Jingpad
-I cannot ping Jingpad from computer
-I cannot ssh into Jingpad

Given that I can ping Computer from Jingpad, they’re both on the local network appropriately and communication is possible one way Jingpad->computer, so must be something blocking incoming connections.

I see ufw is not installed by default in jingos.

Anyone have an idea? Thanks.

Answering my own post, it is working now after I restarted the jingpad… Idk if the restart had anything to do with it, but that’s what happened :slight_smile:
