Linux Unable to connect to Linux machine


Hi Folks,

I've been working away trying to get a working setup for a linux build.
Followed all the instructions here to install dependancies, etc. Which worked... however, when setting up the device in GMS2 I get a "connection to x.x.x.x failed."
I've setup a test user on the machine, and reran everything in the linux doc. I can connect over telnet and putty, but for some reason GMS2 fails.

Any ideas what I'm missing?



GMS 2 uses password authentication to SSH into Ubuntu, so you need to enable that.

Add this to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:
Match User testuser
    PasswordAuthentication yes
Then restart SSH with sudo service ssh reload.
