Can't install: 192.168.1.18 port 22: Broken pipe

Helpful | Level 6

Hi, when trying to install the API the process starts OK but ends with 192.168.1.18 port 22: Broken pipe and the API is not installed. I would appreciate any hint on how to fix it. Many thanks in advance

@simon_schva This error is occurring with pip itself, and not the Dropbox library, so I'm afraid we can't offer help for this in particular. (It looks like it may be failing when trying to SSH to an address on your local network.)

Thanks Greg. I was installing on an Arduino Yun with a Wifi connection. When using a cable connection the Broken pipe message goes away.
