I got this new raspberry pi 3 B with an 8GB sd with the necessary OS options. I tried the following:
HDMI I tried connecting the hdmi cable from pi to my laptop which has linuxmint 17.03 Rosa installed in it. Generally Fn + F8 button should have swapped the video output for the laptop with the raspberry pi out but it's not working.
My linuxmint has a ssh client. So it should have been able to connect to pi. I get a message Connection refused on port 22.As I understand, changing the port to some other port number should do the trick but I am not sure if raspberry pi has the ssh open.
I am using ssh . I received the ip address from the router.
It is supposed to be simple to get it working. I am sure I am doing it wrong somewhere? What could be the simplest solution to this ?
