    Hi there,

    Although I have a good understanding of my mac, I can not, for the life of me, work out how to use SSH? Basicallly, I (think I) have enabled SSH on my AppleTV using the patchstick, which seemed to work fine. But now I need to do other bits an pieces involving SSH and have no idea...

    So, I suppose I have two questions....

    How do I work out the IP of my AppleTV

    And how do I log in to it and make sure that ssh in enabled?

    I know the username and password (frontrow, frontrow). Am I in way over my head?

    Any help appreciated :)

    From a terminal

    To work out the IP address look on your DHCP server for what has been allocated. If you don't know if you have a DHCP server it's perhaps running from your router.


    ssh -l username ipaddress
