# gRPC based apps (such as Zap) won't connect to lnd
nodl OG, nodl One (black, etched logo) and nodl Dojo (red, etched logo)
After clicking the lnd connect link or scanning the QR code, an error occurs and the wallet won't connect to lnd.
There are two probable causes. The TLS certificate may be invalid (for example when the IP address of the device changed or because it has been running for more than a year) or the TCP proxy (
nginx) in front of lnd is stuck.
SSH into your nodl. This step depends on the model of your device.
For nodl OG, use:
$ ssh email@example.com
For nodl One and Dojo, use:
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
(replace "nodl-name" by your nodl's unique name)
If this is your first time connecting through
ssh, you will be prompted to verify the
ssh host key. Simply answer
The password is
nodl1234 for nodl OG (if you haven't changed it). For other devices, it's in the paper you received with your device.
Windows users can use
putty (get it from the official download page (opens new window)).
First, try restarting
nginx with the following command:
$ service nginx restart
If your wallet still can't connect, try:
Then restart lnd in the nodl web interface.
