This question already has an answer here:
I am currently 200 miles away from Raspberry Pi at home and I have just bought the new Raspberry Pi to join my other one.
I am wondering if I could possibly Clone the SD card through RP 1 (the one at home) and then ftp it to my laptop and then clone it to my new sd card (which I will then send home) using Win32DiskImager for the RP2 (arriving at my home tomorrow).
The idea for this is that my mum at home can just connect the cables and insert the SD card which I have taught her how to do.
Also say if I just took out the memory card of my old pi (RP1) and inserted it into the new one (RP2) would it actually work as the RP1 does (including ssh connection)
