latest (Angstrom-Cloud9-IDE-GNOME-eglibc-ipk-v2012.12-beaglebone...) refuses ssh login.

invoking ssh yields:

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

ssh with “-v” yields:

OpenSSH_6.1p1 Debian-4, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012

The subject line is missing the most crucial part of the image identifier. If, by “latest” you meant:
with timestamp:28-May-2013 12:16, then unclear why the failure.

But almost since the 05/08 image of BBB-eMMC-flasher-2013.05.08.img.xz, sshd has been working fine for most folks. If Dave’s workaround doesn’t fix the issue, you may want to try the “latest” BBB-eMMC-flasher-2013.05.28.img.xz listed at:
ssh on that image is working fine (tested from Win7-64bit, ubuntu 13.04 desktop). No dropbear hacks needed.



Do NOT use 05.28. I don't know why it has been picked up. 05.27 should be used. Get it from


On this image : Angstrom-Cloud9-IDE-GNOME-eglibc-ipk-v2012.12-beaglebone-2013.05.24.img.xz

I’ve also an error : " server unexpectedly closed network connection"

If, someone know how to correct that, I’m really open for that :frowning:


And the things is that I’m on the BeagleBone White, so I can’t take the image for the BBB.

what should I do ?
