Most OE-based distributions now a days forbid ssh over wifi, so make
sure you're trying to do this over usb.

Otherwise, you know you are not supposed to enter 'blank' as a
password, right? So, just press enter when it asks for the password,
without typing in anything. If that's totally obvious, sorry, just
making sure ;)
