Raspberry Pi remote access via SSH

Posted by Tech Enthusiast on January 1, 2016

So I finally decided to graduate from Arduino and Atmega16 and start working with the Raspberry Pi. I’m still working on a cool automation project with Atmega16, more on than in a later post. This post is about remotely accessing the Raspberry Pi’s command line from a laptop connected on the same network via SSH.

You can find the IP address of your own computer using ‘hostname -I’. Depending upon the output, you can run nmap which basically scans for other devices on your network. Here is the output I got after running

nmap -sn 192.168.1.0/24

Here Raspberry Pi is at subnet 192.168.1.5 so I simply ran

ssh pi@192.168.1.5

And we have the raspberry pi terminal!
