I’ve been (happily) using DietPi for awhile now. I was having some trouble with PiVPN so I decided to uninstall/reinstall to make sure everything was up to date.
Uninstall worked fine. Rebooted. Worked fine. After rebooting from the reinstall, however, I no longer have SSH access. To make matters worse, I’m travelling (in Europe, live in America) and don’t have physical access.
Any ideas or backdoors of sorts? I had something similar happen in the past like that (on Raspbian) and I was able to VNC in and use the terminal from there. I’m not sure what’s installed by default on DietPi but VNC didn’t seem to work so I assume it isn’t. I can connect to other computers from the local network and they’re getting rejected by it too, so I’m positive it’s not a routing thing. And I have a web server that’s currently running on it so I know it’s booted.
