Not able to SSH into MM

  • Hi,

    I’m not able to SSH into the magic mirror from my network. I used to be able to but now it’s not working, I don’t think anything has changed. I enabled SSH on my PI (it’s a Pi3).

    When i attempt to ssh to the network name of the device I get:

    ssh: Could not resolve hostname magicmirror: nodename nor servname provided, or not known

    When I connect to the ip address that was assigned to the device and then try to ssh to the ip I get:

    ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out

    Any recommendations–or is there an alternative way to connect to the device from the network that does not require connecting a keyboard and mouse?



  • @deadherring I get the same problem. I have to restart the pi, not just MM to get SSH to work. I have another RPi running a NAS that works great and can SSH every time. I don’t know if there’s something interfering or what.

  • @deadherring make sure you’re on the same network as the pi, unless you open a SSH tunnel - then you can connect to your router and further into your pi as if you were on your network. You can use SSH on your phone too, that will eliminate the need of a computer with keyboard and mouse. 🙂
