Can't connect to Beagelbone Black with mac terminal...

When I enter ssh -1 root I get: Protocol major versions differ: 1 vs. 2


Remove the -1, or change it to -2

I’d guess that the BBB is only supporting SSH Protocol V2

Any modern ssh client should be able to use either. SO search the web on how to change the ssh protocol version for your ssh client, and do so.

Why are you forcing protocol version 1 (-1 parameter)? Since the error message says it can’t use protocol 1 why don’t you stop trying to to force it?

ssh root@

should be all the command you need.
