Issue Details

I am connecting Eclipse IDE to NI myRIO controller via SSH, but it resuts with "Failed to connect sshd on "" error.


Switch on SSH or check that SSH is enabled on your target.

Additional Information

Based on Getting Started with C/C++ Development Tools for NI Linux Real-Time​​, Eclipse Edition ​​tutorial you should ensure your target has secure shell (SSH) enabled. You can enable SSH on your target using Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).
