I recently changed my WiFi password, but when I try to log in from VNC, I can't log in unless I type the default astroberry password. I've tried using both astroberry.local and the IP address for the server, but I can't log in with anything but astroberry for a password. This created an issue recently when my friend and I were both using Astroberries, and he was still at the default name, and our two machines became connected.
WIFI password isn’t the password you login in with that’s just used to connect to your local wifi routers network. To change your user password you login, start a console up and use the passwd command to change it.
OK well, I changed the VNC login password using the VNC applet, I did not realize it had it's own password. I assume that's how the 2 computers got intertwined. However you got me thinking about the host name, how do you change that?
On linux it’s usually change the entries in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts and reboot. However it looks like it’s been made straightforward on raspberries. From the astroberry docs
How can I have multiple astroberries on the same network?
Rename your Astroberry using raspi-config and edit the hostname, then restart. It is then available as newname.local. For changing the WiFi hotspot’s name, run nm-connection-editor. You can then make it connect to your other astroberry‘s WiFi.
BTW if you are changing the password in vnc on your pc/mac then you also need to change it on the raspberry pi as all it’s doing is passing that in as the default password afaik
