Filezilla[SOLVED]


#1

I’m trying to connect to my GoPiGo through a Mac using FileZilla. The video says it can be done, but doesn’t demonstrate how exactly. I tried entering the ip address of the GoPiGo as the host with raspberry as the password and port 22, but no luck. I’m sure it is something simple but I can’t find anything on it in the forums. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Use the following settings in Filezilla:

  • Host: sftp://dex.local
  • Username: pi
  • Password: robots1234
  • Port: 22
    and then quickconnect.

Do let us know if this helps.

Thanks for the quick response, when I entered everything this is what it says:

ssh_init: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…
Status: Connecting to dex.local…
Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=4
Command: open “pi@dex.local” 22
Error: ssh_init: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Error: Could not connect to server

Then it eventually stops trying.

Are you able to connect to the Pi via SSH, if so what are the credentials are you using to connect to it.

I am able to connect via SSH, and after typing this I realized where I was messing up…

This worked, using:
*Host: sftp://raspberrypi.local
*Username: pi
*Password: raspberry
*Port 22

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I’m now logged on with FileZilla.

Also, just a quick helpful hint here: If you’re having trouble finding the IP of your Raspberry Pi on your network, we recommend using Fing Software to find the IP address and see if the Raspberry Pi is on the network; we have a tutorial on how to use it here.

You can also see our howto on how to transfer files between your Raspberry Pi and PC here.

Finally, see our video on using Filezilla with the Raspberry Pi.
