HOW TO GET SECURE SHELL (SSH) ACCESS TO THE DEVICE?

First, you will need to know the address. If your workstation and the target device are on the same network, you can find the device address in the About page of the Settings. Alternatively, you can use HOSTNAME.local if your local network supports .local pseudo-top-level domain name resolution. By default, the hostname is set to pyxis in Pyxian distribution. 


Then, you can use ssh to login at the user pi:

$ ssh pi@<ADDRESS>

You should change it with the passwd command after you login for the first time.

HOW TO GET BACK TO THE SETTINGS APP?

There are several options:

  1. Insert a USB flash stick into the USB port.
  2. Briefly connect GPIO 21 (pin 40 of the header) to GND (pin 39 of the header).
  3. Over ssh, execute:

$ echo PREPARE_ADMIN > /tmp/pyxis-fifo/admin_commands
$ echo RESTART > /tmp/pyxis-fifo/admin_commands
