When I connect my Mac to the Raspberry Pi directly via an ethernet cable, in the terminal, I can type:
No special configuration is required.
On my Ubuntu Linux machine, I cannot seem to find the address
raspberrypi.local on a direct Ethernet connection. On the other hand, if I connect to a MiFi device (which I have previously configured the Pi to connect to), I can find
raspberrypi.local and do a regular SSH into it. I am hesitant to do this, however, as I have the Pi recording data resulting in a large data file, which is slow to transfer via the MiFi device, and would much prefer an Ethernet connection.
I recognize that this is most likely a network connectivity issue. How do I go about troubleshooting this, and enabling my Ubuntu machine such that I can ultimately just type:
ssh (or scp) firstname.lastname@example.org
