My second thread This time about real hardware! After all the help I received on the forum about what to buy, I ordered it yesterday and it arrived this morning. Brilliant service, thanks.
Anyway, I’m following the guide to get going and have started by powering up the emonBase, connected by ethernet cable to my network. It came up and I’ve given it a static IP address on my router. I went to http://emonpi/ and created myself an emoncms user. All good so far …
Well, except for one quibble. It’s connected by http and doesn’t seem to support https, so my username and password are sent in the clear.
Anyway, pressing on I got to the part on https://guide.openenergymonitor.org/setup/connect/ where it discusses setting up a static IP and decided I’d try ssh anyway just for the sake of it, but I’m not having much luck:
$ ssh [email protected]
ssh: connect to host emonpi port 22: Connection refused
$ ping emonpi
PING emonpi.lan (192.168.1.78) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from emonpi.lan (192.168.1.78): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.367 ms
When I search online I don’t find emonpi specific links but there are raspberry pi ones that say ssh is disabled by default in recent raspbian releases. Is this my problem, perhaps?
If so, is there any way to enable it other than attach a keyboard and screen?
