Welcome to the world of Pi - you will get many hours of fun from them once you are up and running. First check with your supplier to see if the version of the operating system they put on the card had ssh enabled - most suppliers do not do this though. If not: Try ping raspberry.local - it may find it. Check your router to see if you have a new device Look ...

To find the IP address of your Raspberry Pi, you can try one of the following: ping with common names (rpi, rpi4, rpi3 and raspberry) look at your router administration console to list all devices on the LAN use tools for LAN analysis (like Fing for Android) If ssh is not enabled by default, if you don't own an SD reader nor a USB flash drive, nor a USB ...

According to What are the possible OUIs for the Ethernet MAC address, there are exactly two OUIs used by Raspberry Pi devices as of April 2020. This is confirmed by Raspberry Pi Foundation - MAC vendors list. One solution would be to search your desktop system's ARP table with: linux> sudo arp -a | tr -d : | egrep "b827eb|dca632" windows> arp -...

It is possible to access the Pi over serial terminal, but this requires a USB-serial dongle on the laptop. It is far easier to buy a SD Card reader to enable ssh - these are available for < $5. Once enabled you can ssh into the Pi over Ethernet using a Link-local address with the Pi's hostname (raspberrypi by default) ssh pi@raspberrypi.local This ...

Are you looking for a theoretical solution, or a practical one? SD cards have SPI interface as well, so as long as you can provide a stable 3.3V for powering your card and a debounced clock signal, a few additional switches and wires could solve it. (maybe add an LED and a series resistor to MISO to have some feedback) There's a video where an Atmel AVR ...

Contrary to popular beliefs, there is also a way of booting the Raspberry Pi without using an SD card at all! All of the previous answers recommended impractical ways, and the same applies to this method, though I hope you find it much more practical than what was previously suggested. Method 1: Booting from a MSD (Mass Storage Device ie. USB Flash / Thumb ...

The first thing to do is ignore the tutorial. You do not need to create a new user, but you definitely do need to change the default password. As far as "undoing" the command, you need to login to your Pi from the new account the tutorial writer had you create, and re-set the password for user pi. Once you're logged in as the other user (and ...

Editing /etc/network/interfaces no longer works in Raspbian, as TSGames commented in the most upvoted answer. Instead, you can use /sbin/iw wlan0 get power_save to read the current power save state, and sudo /sbin/iw wlan0 set power_save off to disable power state. Since the iw command is not persistant, I added /sbin/iw wlan0 set power_save off to /etc/rc....

If you are looking for a procedure to change the SSH default port to another port number like 2222, check the SSH config file which is located on /etc/ssh/sshd_config. sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config So, you would see Port 22 that you can change it to Port 2222. Then, save the file and restart the SSH service: sudo service ssh restart

I ran into this trying to access a Raspberry Pi using UltraVNC on Windows 10. The solution is to go into the VNC Connect Options on the Raspberry Pi desktop, on the first tab "Security" change the Authentication from UNIX password to VNC password. You will then be prompted to set the VNC password. I'm sure this can be done by modifying a config file from ...

It's simple. After you write an .img file to the SD-Card, you can find a boot partition. You just need to add an empty file that is named ssh without any format extensions in this partition. After that, plug the SD-Card into the raspberry pi and turn it on. With the DHCP server of your Access point or something like that, you can find the IP address of the ...

Based on your answer that there wasn't a boot partition, your report that the display doesn't work, and an experiment that I've just conducted, I suspect that UNetbootin doesn't do a proper job of installing Raspbian. Since you're just getting started, please try this: Get a copy of balenaEtcher and use it to re-flash your microSD card. Try the boot ...

This is a combination of M. Rostami's answer and my reflections on his answer, which I found cumbersome to add as comments. NB: Your question shows you know how to find your public IP address and the internal address of your Pi. I've included directions here in the hope that they will help others. On your Pi, set up SSH on the default port number, port 22....

Newer raspberry PIs will boot from the USB port. You can install raspbian on the USB stick with the usual process. When it boots you plug in the SD card (don't do it before the boot or it'll try booting from the SD card) and write the data there.

After you have imaged the card before you put it in your Raspberry Pi if you mount the filesystem you can create a file in the /boot folder named ssh and that will enable the SSH service upon first boot.

Is you PI powered by your Mac? If so, sleep mode on the Mac should power off the PI. If this is what is happening, your answer is probably to obtain an independent power supply.

simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab Assume you have a Raspberry Pi connected to your Router at home. Normally your router will give IP addresses to all devices attached to it. In my example the Router assigns to the Raspberry Pi the IP of 192.168.0.101 This IP is only visible in your internal Network and not from the World ...

You could always just plug the pi into the USB-C port and SSH in that way. The USB-C can be used to turn the Pi4 into an ethernet device, I've written up instructions on how to set it up here: https://www.hardill.me.uk/wordpress/2019/11/02/pi4-usb-c-gadget/

You can always use ssh if it is enabled on the RasPi, no matter if the RasPi is connected to a TV or not. How to enable ssh look at SSH (Secure Shell) and SSH using Linux or Mac OS. If you want to have a full graphical user interface with windows you can use VNC. How to do it look at VNC (Virtual Network Computing).

Port forwarded ~ 21 both TCP and UDP It's actually forward packets to port number 21 which is the default port of FTP. You must change it to port number 22 on your router/switch. If you are stubborn about changing the default port of SSH which is 22 to another port number, take note that you can set the SSH default port to 21 but the FTP client would be ...

First thing first : physical access is root access ! When someone can touch the device, handle it as if it will be compromised. Do not trust anything coming from the device, do not hide anything on the device. Any information the PI can read, an attacker can read Any information the PI send, an attacker can read Any information the PI receive, an attacker ...

If you typed sudo passwd without any other arguments, you changed the password of the root user. If you want to change the password of a regular user (for example pi), there are two easy ways to do it: Log in as the user and run passwd without sudo. Run sudo passwd pi to change pi's password. You can replace pi with any username that exists on your system. ...

If the Raspbian installation already has SSH enabled and you know the password, it is only a matter of finding the IP. However, the default installation has SSH disabled. If you have a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and a USB drive, you can install ssh-enabled Rasbian on the USB drive and boot from that. Unfortunately the other Raspberry models do not boot from USB by ...

Rasbpian boots up with IPv6 enabled by default. Provided your laptop supports IPv6, too it solves all your problems: First, broadcast ping your local network: ping6 ff02::1%eno1 All the machines will answer. Log in via ssh (just try all adresses): ssh pi@fe80::f000%eno1 eno1 refers to my laptop's ethernet device in this example.

Yes, there is quite convenient method. Take a look at PiConfig - Raspberry Pi Network Configurator: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/827010089/raspberry-pi-network-configurator-piconfig https://www.geeky-gadgets.com/piconfig-raspberry-pi-network-configurator-23-03-2015/ This is a pendrive dedicated to set up a raspi. It was successfully funded at ...

Thanks to the good advice by Jaromanda X I shared internet through ethernet into my computer. I was able to ssh through that, and when I logged in it said that wifi was blocked because of rfkill. I did not install that package, and I don't know why the service was active by default. All I know is that entering: rfkill unblock wlan fixed the problem, and ...

There's nothing wrong with your approach for individual text files. For a binary file (or a large number of files/directories which you'd pack together with tar/gzip), you can use base64 to encode them as text: Receiver (Pi over picocom): cat | base64 -di > file Sender (another terminal on the PC): cat file | base64 > /proc/`pidof picocom`/fd/0 Also ...

I have not changed anything (as far as I recall...) on the router or on the Pi. You have done a very essential modification. You set a static ip for the ethernet in your router. This breaks the computer based configuration of your network, done by your router, in particular you are also using docker containers. Doing this is not a task to simplify things. ...

This could be related to the default UK keyboard used on the RPi. I used a special character in my password and this converted to " on the default UK keyboard and Locale. Make sure you set the Locale and Keyboard that match what you are actually using.

You can remove /etc/profile.d/sshpwd.sh without breaking the integrity of the system by uninstalling the package it comes from: sudo apt purge libpam-chksshpwd This package has no purpose other than displaying that warning, as shown by apt-cache show libpam-chksshpwd: Description: PAM module to enable SSH password checking support This package includes ...
