Error using raspi (line 160) Cannot establish an SSH connection to the board with device address "raspberrypi-DXxpbHI8JG".
Caused by: Error using raspi (line 156) Error executing command: Unable to open connection: Host does not exist I did enable SSH on pi. How do I solve this?

Find out the IP address of your Raspberry Pi and try connecting using the IP address instead of the host name. First ping on the MATLAB command line:
>> ping <IP address of your Raspberry Pi>
And if ping is successful:
>> h = raspberrypi;
>> connect(h)

>> connect(h) Warning: The connect method of the raspberrypi object will be removed in a future release. You do not need to call the connect method anymore. > In raspberrypi/connect (line 187)
