I just to tried reach my jolla over wifi. I've set up a root password on the phone. I do a ssh root@<ip-address>on my pc. I'm asked for a password, I enter the predefined password. But unfortunately I get a "permission denied" error as if the password were wrong. I've tried several times now, it seems the password I enter on the jolla is not recognized. Any ideas?

oh, the user is nemo :-) ... now it works. But on the phone it says "root password", so I thought, I'm supposed to connect as root ...

the password entered in the settings menu is also the root password, i.e. the password you have to enter when you execute 'devel-su'
