    SSH FAQ

    Question: I’m having SSH connection issues with a device name that has spaces in it, how do I connect?

    This is a limitation ~/.ssh/config.  SSH host names do not allow spaces.  To bypass this issue, just enter in the commands that SSH would normally template out for you:

    fctl port-forward “My Device” -r 127.0.0.1 -p 22 -l 127.0.0.1:9000
    ssh 127.0.0.1:9000

    This command port forwards the SSH port on the device to your local port 9000.
