Hello community.

I want to connect to Control4 controller file system via SSH using WinSCP or PUTTY software. I use default username: root, and passowrd: t0talc0ntr0l4! . But these data are incrorrect. Do I use correct userdata (or, probably they are obsolete) ? Any ideas about it.

Thank you for your answer. 

You can no longer connect via ssh. - completely gone ? Can I try to generate and import SSH key to Control4 controller system and then connect using this key?

correct, default password for root is gone, but you can still connect to C4 via SSH from the Composer Pro, not sure if HE has that feature. 

No you can't - it actually uses a custom ASH instead as far as I can tell

If memory serves on a half overheard conversation it uses random generated temporary keys, so no.
