    Could not chdir to home directory /home/admin: No such file or directory

    where is /home/admin ?

    I'm using the last alpha available (16 oct).

    Bye bye

  • Why admin left the building i don't know, but your can use root as username

  • what's default password for user root? (I've tried "pfsense" without success)

  • Hi

    SSH will not allow "root" login by default.

    First login as admin then create /home, and /home/admin respectively by hand, then copy several .(dot) scripts from ~root, to just created /home/admin. Logout, then login(SSH) again to the box then gives you initial menu.


  • Ok, now all works ok. Thank you.

    How can I warn developers?
