Remote login and file transfer
It is sometimes necessary to log into the Raspberry Pi remotely from another computer. If the Pi and the computer are on the same network, we can do this as follows:
- Determine the IP address of the Pi by typing
- From the remote computer type
ssh pi@<IP Address>
You will then be promted to enter the password. Once this has been done, you will gain access to the command line.
It is possible to transfer a file from a remote computer to the Pi using the scp command. On the command line of the remote host type
scp /path/to/file/ pi@<IP Address>:/home/pi/path/on/the/pi
You will receive a promt to enter the password.
