Learn How to Access Your reMarkable Through the Command Line


My name is Kyra and I’m a computer programmer that decided to stay at home with my two beautiful daughters: Ada and Zoey. I created this website to share with you anything I come across in my day to day life that I think you may enjoy.

    Hi, thank you! Any advice for what to do when I enter “ssh root@(IP)” and I get a notification that access is denied? I have admin access on my PC.

      Off the top of my head I’m not sure. Are you sure you’re entering the right password? Or is it not getting to that part yet? If you add the verbose tag (so: ssh -v root@XXX.XXX.X.XXX) you’ll get more information to narrow down what’s happening. Let me know if it’s still not working and if you give me more information I can try to help you more.

        thanks! This is the full excerpt from the cmd prompt:

        C:\Users\[ME]>ssh -v root@xxx.xxx.x.xxx
        OpenSSH_for_Windows_8.1p1, LibreSSL 3.0.2
        debug1: Connecting to xxx.xxx.x.xxx [xxx.xxx.x.xxx] port 22.
        debug1: connect to address xxx.xxx.x.xxx port 22: Permission denied
        ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.x.xxx port 22: Permission denied

          Does it prompt for a password? Have you configured SSH to work with a public key before? It may be a local configuration issue. For me, on Windows, the first time I connect it gives more output before complaining about the authenticity and has me confirm I want to connect and adds it to the list of known hosts before asking for a password.
