I've found that discovering my device using the Windows 10 IoT tools has been extremely difficult and unreliable. I've been pretty excited about Windows 10 on IoT devices but the ease of using them and writing meaningful software and learn from it has been pathetic. Forums suggest that I need to connect via Ethernet, but the device Surface Pro 4 I use is connected via Wifi and I can't of on the same IP address if I RPi wired and go wireless for my Surface which I use for development work. Can anybody suggest some ways to make life easier to use the setup? Am I the only one going through this? If I am, I'd be oddly surprised. Any tips/help is much appreciated.
Yeah you can log into your router and look under device list.
Im using filezilla to connect to mine. Ive made a wildlife camera for our garden. Rather than keep taking sd card out to view my videos i just connect remotely and drag files accross to my laptop.
ebootpinger.exe will do the trick. I opened powershell remote for my rasp, executed this command. IOT Dashboard then listed my rasp under 'My Devices'
