How to Connect to the Omega’s Command Line
Thank you soo much crispyyoz.
I will definitely try this and I am on omega 2+.
Do I ssh to 192.168.3.1 using the same syntax as I would have done ssh to the omega, so I would use ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry, I am not very clever at this
Thanks a ton
@Crazi-Tane First of all connect to Omega's WiFi Network (to Omega's Wifi AP: Omega-ABCD, default password 12345678) with your Mac.
If the WiFi connection established you will be able to connect via ssh with one of these commands:
The default password is: onioneer
@Crazi-Tane TThe reason i suggested to ssh to 192.168.3.1 is because this requires not name lookup mechanism (DNS/Bonjour) we are just using the raw address. Then you should be prompted for a username (root) then you should be prompted for a password (onioneer).
No need to apologise, we're all here to learn and share knowledge.
Thanks Gyorgy(sorry didn't have umlauts) and crispyyoz
Unfortunately, I still can't find my omega's wifi signal. I have restarted my Mac, the wifi and the omega and none of these have worked.
Crispyyoz, how can I use the terminal app to connect to omega if my Mac and the omega are connected by USB.
Thanks a lot guys. I really appreciate all the help.

From memory: when you connect via USB the computer should register the onion as a serial port.
Just use the ssh as you would over a serial connection (? not familiar with the MAC way of doing this sorry).
@Crazi-Tane Your config: you have an Omega2+, its firmware unknown (and a host PC - a Mac).
Do you have any Dock?
boot, amber LED, etc.
You can't find your Omega WiFi network - so most probably your Omega does not work at all.
Please let us know what happens after Power On.
You wrote previously:
I also, can't see the omegas wifi network. I have completed the first time setup and could find it then.
Do you remember what happened after?
Gyorgy, I have an expansion dock. When I power it on, the orange light turns on and then starts flashing. After a while it stops flashing, so then I check the wifi and it isn't there.
The first time, it took a bit longer to power on, but I found its wifi.
@Crazi-Tane I would try as factory reset then start again, I suspect you have got yourself tied in knots.
@Crazi-Tane Yes. Factory reset - long press the RESET BUTTON of Expansion Dock - is a good idea, give it a try.
You wrote about the amber LED "... turns on and then starts flashing. After a while it stops flashing"
And ... does it stay ON or OFF?
Try to connect to the Serial Console. It's a very useful troubleshooting tool. Serial on a Mac Device
Thanks gyorgy, I will do both of the things that you suggested.
The LED stays on.
@crispyoz Thanks crispyoz
Also guys, when I factory reset, will there be any thing to let me know that the omega has factory reset. Like a light or something?
Thanks a lot

@Crazi-Tane when the Omega is performing a factory reset, the LED will flash rapidly while the restore of the factory firmware is being performed, then it will reboot and as it boots the LED will flicker as per a usual reboot process.
@Crazi-Tane The amber LED of your Omega2+ is ON - it's a good news.
Press and hold down the RESET BUTTON as long as the LED starts blinking very quickly and hopefully it's performing a successful factory reset.
After just over one (1) minute the amber LED remains ON and - a little bit later - you should find the Omega-ABCD WiFi AP.
Thanks guys so much will try tonight
