Dropbear user login

Hi all:
I'm login openwrt for dropbear . I can't login for admin user, but can login for root user.


only root user exists unless you have made modifications to add other users

Hi mbo2o:
thanks, My system have root and admin user.How can I modify admin user ?

reset password for admin would be my first step

Hi mbo2o:
Why? I have modified it.

OpenWrt is a single user OS, so unless you're deploying an extremely locked down sudoers config (requires sudo package), utilizing an account other than root is pointless.

Possible problems are:

  • missing /home/admin
  • lacking permissions (chown admin /home/admin; chmod o+rwX /home/admin) on /home/admin
  • bad shell for admin in /etc/passwd
