Android FX Explorer can’t connect to Raspberry pi with OSMC via SSH

Since the last update of OSMC in my Raspberry PI I was unable to connect from my smartphone using this awesome app called FX Explorer on the other and I still can use Juiced SSH.

So I had to dig on that problem!

After I little search I finally manage to find the problem, the last version of OSMC had a different configuration

1
$ sudo vim /etc/ssh/ssh_config

That was a missing algorithm in that line:

1
KexAlgorithms curve25519-sha256@libssh.org,ecdh-sha2-nistp521,ecdh-sha2-nistp384,ecdh-sha2-nistp256,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256

Just add

1
diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1

So the line looks like:

1
KexAlgorithms curve25519-sha256@libssh.org,ecdh-sha2-nistp521,ecdh-sha2-nistp384,ecdh-sha2-nistp256,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1

Now save, exit and restart sshd service

1
$ sudo systemctl restart sshd

And you’re done!
