PowerShell resin ssh - 'Could not create directory '/home/Raphael/.ssh'

ssh

#1

Hi,

I tried to create a ssh connection to a device using the resin ssh command. The command and device work fine if I set up a Docker Container which installs resin-cli. But i can not get it working on my Windows machine.

EDIT Everything works fine on bash as well.

I did document the ‘procedure’:

# Sets the execution policy and downloads / installs chocolatey.
 Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
 Invoke-Expression ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))
 refreshenv

 choco upgrade chocolatey

 #if you already have git do not install it again! 
 choco install git -y

 #is required tomake npm available
 choco install nodejs.install -y
 choco install rsync -y
 refreshenv

 #install the cli tool
 npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
 npm install --global --production resin-cli resin-plugin-img

The resin-cli functions work (I can list the devices and so on). But when i run resin ssh i get the following result:

λ resin ssh 631287
Connecting to: 631287
Could not create directory '/home/Raphael/.ssh'.
Permission denied (publickey).

What is the problem with resin ssh ? The normal ssh command works properly. (and does use the right path to the rsa key files as well)

Hi,
What version of Windows are you using?
What shell are you using to execute these commands?
Can you run the resin ssh command using the -v flag and post the output?

I got Windows 10 Pro (up to date) and use PowerShell (with Cmder as UI)

Here the verbose output:

#4

Windows support for resin ssh is not fully in place, we recommend using something like bash or git for running this command. Please see the resin-cli readme for more information https://github.com/resin-io/resin-cli#windows-support


#5

on MINGW64 it works fine :slight_smile:

Thanks, I did miss the part where it says it is not supported on CMD / PowerShell.


#6

Great! I’m glad I could help :smiley_cat:


#7

I figured out what was causing the Problem:

The ssh that comes with chocolatey has problems with the home path. I change my path variable to use the ssh from git everything works as expected.
