This is what happens when the 770 is offline, or you use a wrong IP address.

But does it get a ping response from

A password prompt followed by a "Permission denied" error.

You need to either use SSH pubkey authentication (and specify the username
'user'), or log in as root and set a password for the 'user' account.

ssh root at ip.of.your.device will work with the password 'rootme'.  That's
probably not what you want in the long term.  I suggest changing the
root password.  (Or locking the root account with 'passwd -l' after you've
set up pubkey auth and granted the user 'user' full sudo rights.)

Easiest way to install it: first install becomeroot and xterm (and remove
dropbear), then open a terminal and do

  sudo su
  apt-get install ssh

Alternatively, if you're happy with dropbear, stick with it.  I think it is
supposed to be smaller.

Yes, but those repositories do not contain anything interesting (yet).
