Permission Denied (publickey)

Recommended Posts

I am a complete noob at this, so I could be doing something completely wrong. Just got the Lan turtle today. Plugged it in with a phone charger meeting minimium power requirements and connected it to a PC with an OTG ethernet-to-USB adapter. Had to setup the network connection manually (on Ubuntu 16.10) with: IP - 172.16.84.1, Netmask - 255.255.255.0, Gateway - 192.168.1.1, DNS Servers - 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

After that, I check the connection with ifconfig and everything appears to be OK, so I finally tried connecting to the Lan Turtle.

:$ ssh [email protected]
Permission denied (publickey).

I have setup openssh on a few of my PCs for ssh-key authentication only, but this the first time using the Lan Turtle. Also realised I cannot browse on the internet while it is connected, even with wifi and another wired connection available.

I have searched around to see if there is a fix for this, but I canot find anything.

make sure your ubuntu machine is not on 172.16.84.1   set it to 172.16.84.42

try plugging it into your computer usb port  then use the wp6 python script

To start ics 

 

Or I just  connect directly to my router and ssh in  , never had a issue

I've got it working now! I just plugged the Ethernet end into the router and the USB into the PC and now I can ssh into it.

Been looking around for an answer to this. Before I brick my turtle, can I use a regular mobile phone charger (I have a blackberry wall charger that has a USB interface) to power my turtle?
