This option allows you to enable or disable remote command-line access to your Raspberry Pi using Secure Shell (SSH) on TCP port 22.
Enabling SSH allows you to remotely access the command-line of the Raspberry Pi from another device on your network, without the need for a locally attached keyboard or display. Disabling SSH ensures the service does not start on boot, freeing up a small amount of processing resources. If connecting your Raspberry Pi directly to a public network, you should disable SSH unless you have setup secure passwords for all users.
The default SSH option is Enabled.
- Start on the Raspberry Pi Configuration Interfaces tab.
- At the SSH option, select Enabled or Disabled.
Changes won’t be saved until you click OK to exit the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool, and also requires a reboot to take effect.
