Raspberry Pi headless setup

fox:
Here is a good, easy to follow article on how to set up your Raspberry Pi and run it headless.

Jason:
That's cool. Looks very beginner-friendly. One criticism though. For the love of God, don't use Putty. Linux already has a built-in SSH client and it's really not that hard to use. There's no need for putty. I believe Windows' Powershell also has ssh. Just type:

ssh pi@100.110.120.130

(substitute pi with whatever username you have if it's not the default and the actual IP address. You can also add an entry to /etc/hosts so that the IP address can be represented by something 'foxmulder' so you do:

ssh pi@foxmulder

The rest is fine although you can set up X-forwarding over ssh which may give you better performance than VNC. Somewhere there are presentation notes I gave on using ssh. You should also set up a static IP so that if your router is rebooted, you can still get into the Pi. I think my notes showed how to do this but you can google it. It's easy.

fox:
Thanks, Jason. Now that you mention it, I think I did follow your instructions when I set up my Pi to work headless. I was only doing it to play around and my Pi isn't connected to anything right now. I put it aside, but I'll have to get back to it.

Thanks Fox for the Link to the RPi headless article. I have bookmarked it on my computer.

Thanks Jason for your tip about using SSH on the RPi. I will have to fire up my RPi and try those commands.
