    Glad I found this thread, the above worked for me!

    Here's what worked to open a Linux shell for my HomeTroller Pi with HS4 from Win 10:

    1: Make sure the OpenSSH Client is installed:
    Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features > Optional Features. Search for OpenSSH Client, and choose to install the OpenSSH Client if not already installed.

    2: Get your HomeTroller Pi's IP address:
    Log into myhs.homeseer.com using the username and password you selected when you installed your HomeTroller Pi.
    Note the IP address in the address bar for use in the next step:

    3: Open a Command Prompt, and enter the following, inserting your real IP address:
    SSH homeseer@<Type-IP-Address-here>
    When prompted for the password, enter the the same password you used to log into myhs.homeseer.com. (Yes, even though the username is different!)

    The Command Prompt should now look something like this:
    C:\Users\Swail>ssh homeseer@192.168.1.2
    homeseer@192.168.1.2's password:
    Linux HTPiHubG1 5.4.51-v7+ #1333 SMP Mon Aug 10 16:45:19 BST 2020 armv7l

    The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software;
    Linux HTPiHubG1 5.4.51-v7+ #1333 SMP Mon Aug 10 16:45:19 BST 2020 armv7l

    Please be careful what you do, a Linux shell is a powerful tool!

    Nope never figured it out. I didn’t really have a need to login to the console, I just wanted to make sure I had the user name and password written down.

    I'm having this same issue, did you have an resolution?

    I tried logging into linux tools using root username/password but that didn't work, but maybe I can't login to linux tools with root? I'll try to SSH in a bit, but I'm remote so I'll have to do some port forwarding rules temporarily to get it to work.

    i have tried remote terminaling in via a ssh app as well as trying through the Linux tool menu in Hometroller. I have tired all logins. User name homeseer pass hsthsths3 and hsthsths4. i have tried homeseerpi as the username, and root as the username. I have tried : root pw = homeseerpi | homeseer pw = hsthsths4. Can not log into Linux, When i first installed it i tried to change the password but it said my passwords did not match and when i tried it again i got no response from the UI, if i use the LINUX drop down change password menu i get no response , it does no say wrong password just does not do anything.....

    Are you trying to ssh? If so what syntax are you using. You have to use ssh homeseer@yourIPAddress to ensure you are using the homeseer user account.

    You shouldnt need root access since user homeseer is in the sudoers file.
    You need to login to some account be it root or pi since password for homeseer appears unknown after registration.

    I tried that password but did not work. I thought that password is only for web page authentication.

    Clearly support and engineering has not tied this and as I suspect most users don’t care. Username “Homeseer” does not work with hsthsths3 or 4. Clearly a bug.... I have a new fresh install as well.

    OK. Changing the homeseer user password via root appears to have no ill effect on HS4. The linux tools page appears to function properly with the new password.
