I've read multiple guides on how to connect a raspberry pi with a pc through internet yet I always fail . I have a windows machine,I did share the wifi connection with the ethernet which the pi is connected to. I also did activate ssh from the sudo raspi-config menu beforehand (but did not add an ssh file) on the pi. I also read the pi's ip using the advanced ip scanner program yet I cannot connect on the pi. Both Putty and VNC viewer say "network refused" whenever I try to connect. And yes I did consider restarting the machine multiple times to ensure sharing is applied. I tried the exact same steps on another machine on another network and got the same problem. Can anyone give me a hint? I'm getting kinda desperate.Thanks for your time. I'll post an answer if I find one.
