General tips about protection against locking yourself out

Having just locked myself out by fiddling around with config (I strongly suspect) and stuffing up SSH, I just want to ask if there are any completely general tips for protecting yourself from getting locked out by config changes, user account / password changes or bad updates? Ideas (very vague, ign...

Re: Locked myself out - no ssh and no keybd / screen available

Many thanks. I just wondered if there are other protocols available that I could exploit for remote management. (Since I have good usernames / passwords.) I don't have the box's innards exposed as a file server, so I can't use a remote file system to examine/repair that config file. Well not that I ...

Locked myself out - no ssh and no keybd / screen available

I suspect I have screwed up the config file for ssh on raspian. I was able to ssh into my pi fine, now ssh client refuses to connect. I am partially disabled and don't have a screen or keybd - I was using ssh for everything before. The box is pingable at its usual IPv4 address (over ethernet). Is th...

Re: Headless setup for disabled user

@jbudd - many many thanks for your generous offer.

I've now had three offers of help, so if those don't pan out then I'd very much like to take you up on that. Extremely good of you, and I may indeed come back to you.

Re: Headless setup for disabled user

I'm in Skye, Scotland. I'm afraid it's physical help from a volunteer that I will need as I'm so sick that I can't sit upright for long periods, I'm in pain confused, dizzy and nauseous.

Should I have started a new topic, lest these 'replies' simply go unnoticed?

Re: Headless setup for disabled user

Btw the machine is the latest model, purchased April 2016, so I think that would make it a Model 3 B. I've simply been far too ill to get it going and I don't have any of the tools necessary and I'm also too ill to sit at a desktop PC, too confused and in too much pain, among other things.

Re: Headless setup for disabled user

Due to various screw-ups and my deteriorating health, would someone be kind enough to volunteer to rescue me 1) advise me how to _buy_ a large, fast SD card with the latest Raspbian already on it, or better would you copy the latest o/s onto an excellent card for me, and 2) create/edit the appropria...

Re: Headless setup for disabled user

A few questions about addressing - 1. I'm wondering about default IPv4 addresses. Does a Raspbian system act as a DHCP client by default? 2. Is IPv6 enabled by default? 3. I'm wondering if the system will acquire one or more MAC-derived IPv6 addresses by default? How do I add a routable public stati...

Headless setup for disabled user

(Closely related to this thread: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=167063&p=1075464&hilit=Headless#p1075464) I'm wondering how to set up a Pi in headless mode? Out of the box, is there a way I can log in to Raspbian over the LAN, to a Pi without a screen or keyboard? Assuming t...

LAN security alerting software, arp, NDP and DHCP attacks

I'm interested in finding out about monitoring and _alerting_ software that could detect malicious activity on my LAN and report arp poisoning, abuse of NDP and other IPv6-based attacks and attacks based on DHCPv4 and DHCPv6. Any tips on useful software products? I'm thinking about arpwatch and simi...

Re: Remote Desktop Connection Help!

This doesn't really answer your question, so apologies in advance. A suggestion - What you need of course is a proper global static IP address, as everyone does really. Apart from changing to a better ISP, you could try looking into getting an additional IPv6 address range from Hurricane Electric or...
