I will show you, how to activate the ssh remote console and connect it trough putty.
This tutorial based on everydaylinuxuser.
SSH stands for “Secure Shell” and describes a way to connect to a remote system in a secure way. With PUTTY we have a remote command line tool which can connect trough SSH to Raspbian.
We will do the following steps:
- First download and install PUTTY on your local machine (not the PI).
- Activate SSH Console inside of Raspbian
- Connect to Raspbian trough Putty
1. After downloading PUTTY you can start it and leave it
2. To activate the SSH Console, connect the PI to a HDMI Monitor and plug in a keyboard and mouse
- Click on Menu -> Preferences -> Raspberry Pi Configuration (see image above)
- In the new window click on Interfaces
- At SSH click on Enabled
- Click OK
- Maybe you have to restart the pi
Hint: At the Raspberry Pi Configuration you can change a lot of internal settings, like the password etc.
The default username for Raspbian is: pi
The default password for Raspbian is: raspberry
3. Inside of PUTTY enter raspberrypi as hostname and click on Open (see image above)
- Maybe you get a warning, confirm with yes (see image below)
- If you did everything OK, you have to enter the username (pi) and the password (raspberry) and confirm it always with enter
- Now you should be logged into Raspbian over SSH (see image below)
Good you’re done
