Changing Pi name and ssh

Fri Jun 08, 2012 7:46 pm

I tried to change the name of my first pi using hostname and I started seeing errors associated with ssh. I assume I need to generate a new set of keys for ssh to stop this?

If using the Debian release for the RPi, what I suggest you do first is watch this video once from start to end, then follow it and pause where necessary whilst you check all indicated files are set how they should be;

Then repeat with this one for SSH;

I`ve done them both loads of times now, with no problems. Good luck,

Steve
