Unable to SSH Jetson Nano with laptop

I’m working on Jetson Nano in headless mode via Windows OS. I’m logging into Nano via Windows PowerShell. It logs in fine but after a while the SSH connection ends automatically.
It says:
Connection reset by port 22

And after that, it does not connect at all and the Command windows says:
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out

For internet connection to Nano, I’ve connected the board directly into a wired ethernet router from the onboard ethernet port.


You should use USB cable instead of ethernet cable.

Do you have “openssh-server” package ? If you do not have it , you can install like

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

Yes the server is installed. Otherwise the connection wouldn’t establish at all.
The connection is establishing but getting disconnected after a while automatically.

Please check if configuring the client alive interval would help or not.




When I run this command on Command Prompt, it says

The system cannot find the path specified.

This is not a command. This is a configuration text file for ssh…

I’m running the classification code on Jupyter Notebook from Getting Started with AI on Jetson Nano Course.
I just figured out that when I click on the Train button, then the SSH disconnects (after a minute or so), otherwise the connection’s fine before that regardless of the idle time.

Shall I still try to configure the client alive interval?


I was using Windows PowerShell. I switched to PuTTy and the problem doesn’t occur anymore. I was able to train the dataset.
