Open terminal on host computer to use Linux shell on NVIDIA hardware





openShell(hwObj) opens an SSH terminal on your host computer that provides encrypted access to the Linux® command shell on the NVIDIA® hardware. When you are prompted, enter a user name and password.

The NVIDIA hardware has two default user names: 'nvidia' and 'ubuntu'. For 'nvidia', the default password is 'nvidia'. For 'ubuntu', the default password is empty: 'ubuntu'.

You can use an encrypted SSH terminal session to change the password on your NVIDIA Jetson board.

It is a good security practice to change the default password to a secure password the first time that you connect to the NVIDIA board.

hwObj = jetson()

Use the passwd command to change the password of the current user.


Input Arguments
