Can't access KODI through SSH.



  • I am new to Retropie. I am figuring out the Emulationstation part of things. I am trying to configure KODI and have run into a snag. I want to run a VPN and have found several tutorials. I follow them but when I get to logging in with Putty, I just get access denied after the password.

    I read that KODI 17.3 is built on libreelec. The default password doesn't work. I wrote the image and changed the card name from boot to RetroPie if that matters. All that is on the system is KODI and some old games.
