Raspbian Jessie : Re-activate SSH by default

1. Issue

Since November 2016, SSH server on Raspbian is disabled by default. On the first boot, you’ll find a closed door :

Permission denied, please try again.

2. Option 1 : Direct access

If you have a keyboard and a screen, you might used the well known :

sudo raspi-config

And then go to : Interfacing options > ssh > Enable or disable ssh server

1. Option 2 : Headless

Like me, you always set-up headless server with your pi, then you need to write a file on the Pi SD card (on the /boot).

touch /media/MyPiBootMountPoint/ssh

The SSH server will be activated on the first boot !
