Try exploring your files system by using 'ls' to list the files in the current directory and 'cd' followed by a directory name to change the current directory.

You can edit files using 'nano' followed by the file name and also install software using the 'apt-get' command, as described in some of the earlier tutorials in this series.

When finished with your ssh session, close the client application/window or simply type in exit into the shell window.


If you encounter a connection reset by peer error when trying to connect to your Pi, there could be a problem with the SSH keys. You can 'reset' the keys with the following commands.

First, remove the old keys:

sudo rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host_*

Then regenerate them

sudo dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server

Then try again!
