Like skibo187's post "PC unable to connect" (https://forums.hak5.org/topic/50725-pc-unable-to-connect/), I too am experiencing repeated failures to connect to my SharkJack, either via Windows10 or Linux.
When using Windows 10 I can ping the address 172.16.24.1 and see it the device listed in ipconfig, but when I try to connect via PUTTY, I get "PUTTY Fatal Error: Network error: Connection refused"
When trying to connect via SSH on Linux it refuses to accept the password
I am running the latest firmware and managed to connect after upgrading, but connections are rare, it mostly fails to connect. I've waited over 3 minutes to ensure its booted up and it still refuses to connect. I'm becoming increasingly exasperated
