I just got a fairly old model of Raspberry Pi (Model B with 512MB RAM). As I don't have an extra keyboard or screen, I'm trying to hook it up via ethernet with my laptop.
I copied a Raspbian image to a 16GB sd card. (2017-09-07-raspbian-stretch). I also made an empty file named "ssh" under /boot
I enabled IPv4 to share the network via ethernet, and used nmap to check the IP of my Pi. Result of the nmap is:
$nmap -sn 192.168.1.0/24 Starting Nmap 7.01 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2017-10-29 17:29 EET Nmap scan report for 192.168.1.106 Host is up (0.00018s latency). Nmap scan report for 192.168.1.253 Host is up (0.12s latency). Nmap done: 256 IP addresses (2 hosts up) scanned in 10.13 seconds
According to ifconfig, my laptop's IP is 192.168.1.106, and I believe that 192.168.1.253 is the Raspberry.
I pinged 192.168.1.253, and it went through smoothly.
Then I tried to SSH into the Raspberry, but I always get "Connection timed out":
$ ssh -v firstname.lastname@example.org OpenSSH_7.2p2 Ubuntu-4ubuntu2.1, OpenSSL 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to 192.168.1.253 [192.168.1.253] port 22. debug1: connect to address 192.168.1.253 port 22: Connection timed out ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.253 port 22: Connection timed out
As for power issues, I have LEDs PWR (red), FDX (green), LNK (green) and 100 (orange) on. Does that mean that the power is OK? I only have an SD card, ethernet cable, and power connected to the Raspberry.
I don't get why can't I SSH to the Raspberry. It would be really nice if anyone can help.
My laptop is on Ubuntu 16.04.
I found that in my Raspberry, under /etc, there's no folder /etc/folder, nor is there the file "dhcpd.conf". Could this be the cause of the problem?
