Ubiquiti’s or UI’s GPONs do not have a SSH client by default. Or do they?
If you type “ssh” and hit return, you’ll receive a “not found” error.
Typically on devices like home routers, GPONs, UniFi AP’s etc, ssh is handled by Dropbear. Dropbear provides a Secure Shell compatible server and client and is typically used in embedded systems.
To SSH from a GPON to another device, use dbclient
dbclient is the Dropbear client. AKA, SSH client.
