Emulator changed a bit and the 'nemo' password is not default nemo anymore - I cannot even say it here as its generated per device.
However, to access emulator you can do:
ssh -p 2223 -i ~/SailfishOS/vmshare/ssh/private_keys/1/root root at localhost


ssh -p 2223 -i ~/SailfishOS/vmshare/ssh/private_keys/1/nemo nemo at localhost

On Windows it's equivalent, but you need to find a)SSH tool b)use Windows paths to locate keys etc. On MobaXTerm/Cygwin it's similar to real ssh command line but on Putty you need to work it to use right key etc - and currently I don't have Windows PC to try it out :/

thanks, Jarko

Hi Jarko

When I SSH into the Emulator as user nemo using a rsa key, I am now
asked for a password (memo). I am sure this was not the case prior to
the update. Has the security changed?

The same applies to the user root - for which I don't know the
password. But I guess we should be doing everything (e.g. zypper) as

SSHing to the SDK Build Engine VM using the existing key (or with
password) does not work at all, I get Permission denied (publickey).
