I want to setup my pi 3 working with just a power bank and my phone via mobile Hotspot. I know that ssh and vnc server are two ways to do it but I don't know how.

Thanks for your time and I appreciate all the help i can get.

  1. Network layer: decide whether to use your phone in tethering mode so it works as an access point, or configure the Pi to act as an access point. Unless you can connect both devices to an existing Wifi network, you'll need to put one device into access point (AP) mode.
  2. Services
    • on the Pi use sudo raspi-config to enable SSH and/or VNC. I recommend enabling both, unless you want to use SSH only.
    • on your phone, get an SSH client app and/or the official VNC client app. On Android, I recommend JuiceSSH from my own personal experience. For VNC, use the official VNC client to avoid all kind of protocol issues with different VNC clients and servers.

Enjoy. I'm using such a setup on a regular basis to maintain a set of Pi Zero Ws, and even sometimes 3Bs. For me, SSH mostly sufficies, but from time to time I may need a GUI session, which is when VNC comes in handy.

  • Can u please suggest a simpler step guide because I'm new. – aniket sharama Jul 22 '17 at 14:20
  • So, do you want to be the Pi the Wifi access point? – TheDiveO Jul 22 '17 at 15:32
  • No I want my phone to be the access point – aniket sharama Jul 22 '17 at 15:33
  • First enable ssh and vnc on the Pi using raspi-config. Then set up your phone for tethering, and connect your pi to it. You do it the same way as connecting to any other wifi network. Now the Pi's IP address that is shown on your phone. Finally, start the vnc client app on your phone and connect to the IP address you've seen in the list o of tethered devices on your phone. – TheDiveO Jul 22 '17 at 15:43
