WINSCP and pi password
after scraping with xml, i decided to change the way some emulators showed the snap, going from a standard picture of game, to a cabinet with video. It seems the only way for this to work is to delete the gamefile inside pi.
I started winscp (wich worked fine till now) and i get the acess denied, i changed the password on pi and still i get acess denied.
Pi is connected to same network, i can acess roms folders via windows folders, but cant acess via winscp.
any solution for this that avoids clean install? thanks.

@ruicunha Is SSH enabled on the pi? I think that has to be on to WINSCP to the pi.
its enable but i keep geting connection refused even after i tried to change password, i dont understand whats wrong.
@ruicunha Are you using an IP address or a hostname to connect ? Could it be that the IP address is no longer valid ?
Its the same ip has the one i see on pi. i get this also
O servidor rejeitou conexão SFTP, mas aceita conexões FTP.
Pretendia utilizar o protocolo FTP em vez do SFTP? Prefira ao utilizar encriptação.
sorry for the diferent language
ill reinstall everything, password seems to be the problem.
Still cant connect.
I connect to wifi
use hostname RETROPIE or the pi ip
then asks for password and i get always acess denied.
It used to work, now i cannot login, dont know what im doing wrong.
@ruicunha What password are you using ? It's the default (
raspberry) or did you change it ?
default didnt worked, i changed to RASPBERRY, even with other passwords it doesnt connect, its driving me mad, i can acess the rom folder and place roms but canT acess winscp.
@ruicunha You could check the
/var/log/auth.logfile to see why the authentication is not working. Should show something like the line below if the password is not correct.
retropie sshd: Failed password for pi from <IP_ADDRESS> port 51284 ssh2
how do i acess that?

@ruicunha You can insert the SD card into card reader and then use tools like Linux Reader or Ext2FS to access unix file systems.
You can also install a live unix system like Puppy linux, Ubuntu Live System ... but I made best experience with Linux Reader
Just connect a keyboard to your Pie
Then Quit ES and you get terminal access
@ruicunha You can see the auth.log file from the terminal, after existing Emulationstation:
sudo tail /var/log/auth.log
How did you change the password for the Pi user ?
I got Failed password for invalid user PI from
I changed password inside raspberry setup in retropie, ill try and use numbers for password.
Guys thanks for the help, i hope i can fix this.
I change to numbers from the pi command line and still it doesnt connect.
i remember that on my 1st attempt when it worked i had to change the password to RASPBERRY, but now even if i change it i cannot connect. I dont know what i need to do.
I got it, man im so stupid, i was using PI instead of pi. My god it took me an entire day, thanks for the help guys.
