Secure Shell Protocol (SSH)

Issue Details

I am using a PXIe-8880 controller. I am trying to access the Linux shell on it, but I cannot find the option to enable SSH in NI MAX. Why?

Solution

Currently, all NI Real-Time PXI and PXIe controllers run Phar Lap ETS operating system, which does not support Secure Shell (SSH).

Additional Information

On some NI PXI(e) controllers Windows 7 and Windows 10 can be installed as non-real-time operating system. As of April 2018, Windows 10 version 1809 supports OpenSSH Server for Windows. It is not installed by default, but can manually be installed.
