I just installed Ubuntu on my Nexus 7 and works like a champ, but I can't connect via SSH/Telnet/RSH from my laptop. I've installed openssh-server, telnetd-ssl and rsh-server, but still can't.

The connection is made, but it hangs after typing my password.

$ ssh ubuntu@  
ubuntu@'s password:

I'm running Ubuntu Raring 13.04 on a Nexus 7 32GB

Thank you.

Raring Ringtail is in beta, and thus not supported here, making this question off-topic. See the FAQ – Seth Jan 10 '13 at 3:20

I have just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on a nexus 7. The steps were, in a terminal on the nexus:

$ apt-get install openssh-server # answer y
$ ifconfig wlan0 # to find nexus IP address

Then, on a computer in the same wireless network,

$ ssh loginname@ip-address

That's what I did, but I couldn't login via SSH. I'm going to reinstall Ubuntu and see what happens. Thanks guys! – Omar Jan 15 '13 at 4:04

Login with the user you created during the installation. But make ssh more verbose, should tell you were it is hanging.

ssh -vvv ubuntu@

I already tried with the user I created during the installation and also with root, but still can't login. – Omar Jan 10 '13 at 7:45
