what is the password to be given for ssh root@ for latest Debian Jessie SD card image

Hi ,

This is my first work with Beaglebone black.

I got the latest image bone-debian-8.7-lxqt-4gb-armhf-2017-03-19-4gb.img from https://beagleboard.org/latest-images.

Then I bootup BBB from micro sd card.

And then I tried to connect it through Ethernet on USB with ssh root@, It is not taking any values.

But with ssh debian@, it is working fine, when the default password temppwd is given.

Then I changed the root password with sudo passwd root and su - commands.

But the password set so for root is not working for ssh.

(But this root password is working for serial terminal(putty) ie J1 connector in BBB).

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thanks & Regards,

root over ssh is disabled by default.

Hi Robert C Nelson,

Thank You for the reply and guidance,
I will do the same.

Thanks & Regards,

Dear Rober,

I coudn’t pass either of:
root@beaglebone.local’s password:

Debian 9 image on BBB

root is "disabled" over the "network" interfaces.

if you want to login as root, use the serial interface..
