SSH Into Your Pi
The default account to your Hassbian installation is as follows (Linux is case sensitive, the username and password are all lowercase).
- Start Putty, enter ‘hassbian.local‘ in the Host Name field (marked with an arrow):
- Click the ‘Open’ button at the bottom of the window.
- On first connection, Putty will prompt a security alert. Click ‘Yes‘ to accept:
- When you see the words ‘Login As’, enter ‘pi’ (no quotes) and press the ENTER key. Like so:
- When prompted for the password, enter ‘raspberry’ (no quotes) and press the ENTER key. The console will not display any characters as you type your password. You have to enter the password blind.
- Once you press the ENTER key, you should see a command prompt, like so:
Notice the message after you logged in for the first time? The default password is publicly known and is a security risk.
SSH is enabled and the default password for the ‘pi’ user has not been changed.
This is a security risk - please login as the ‘pi’ user and type ‘passwd’ to set a new password.

ARMv7 edition of Snakeoil is not ready yet. Hopefully I can find some time to implement that in the coming months.

Great article, I just add one thing…you should tell to look for the permissions of the folders where the private keys are. I’ve got some issues when i tried to connect to HTTPs and was resolve by changing the permissions of home assistant user for that folders.
Maybe because of the version of hass.io - 0.82.1

Is the IMG file of Snakeoil ready for Raspberry Pi 3B installation? Is it as easy as volumio or Runeaudio for installation of the Snakeoil just by flashing it onto a micro SD card and inserting it to the Raspberry Pi so simple? Where is the location of all the OS installation files stored on the web? Can I have the relevant link here to search them out and have a trial?

Yes, the IMG file works with all versions of Raspberry Pis - mainly because it’s 32 bits.
All the Intel ISOs and IMGs are in one location, follow the “Version” link in this article to get the latest image to use.
