I am trying to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to my laptop using Ethernet to avoid the use of a keyboard, mouse, and screen. I installed on my sd card Ubuntu Mate 16.04 and I configured it. I installed also Openssh server.
After that, I changed the local area network settings on my PC (Windows):
- Obtain an IP Address automatically
- Sharing Settings: Allow other networks to connect through this computer's... (to make internet connection available to my Rpi through my PC wifi)
However, this does not work. Then, I tried connecting my Rpi to a router, and I installed on my phone ConnectBot. I was able to connect to Rpi through the Router via ssh. The thing is that I am trying to achieve the connection without a router (only ethernet cable).
I used to do the above steps with my Raspberry Pi model B and Raspbian OS. I used to ping raspberry.mshome.net, get the IP, and connect using Putty. With Ubuntu Mate I am always getting "Connection Refused". I searched the internet and there are no clear documentation or steps to do this. Can you suggest any article or steps? Thanks!
