16  General Category / General Discussion / First log on to out of box Sheeva-plug assistance request. on: October 14, 2009, 11:12:21 PM
A request for help out of the gate:

I tried both windows vista via Putty and Linux Ubuntu/Mint and no go,
I try ssh root@169.254.148.164 and get: 169.254.148.164 port 22: No route to host
Putty gave me about the same results. I was not able to find the DHCP log to get the
ip address but windows network information gave some hints that this was the needed ip address.

Following these directions - I was not able to get there. - never got to Log in

    * ou must have a DHCP server on your network. If you are using a home router, you probably do.
    * Connect the Plug to both ethernet and power. It will boot and acquire an IP address via DHCP after a few minutes.
    * Check your DHCP logs to find out what IP address the Plug got.
    * SSH to the Plug as root. On Linux or Mac, just do "ssh root@<ip>" (where <ip> is the plug's IP address). On Windows, Putty is an excellent SSH client.
    * Log in to the Plug with the password "nosoup4u".

Any one else with the same problem, now solved ??
