We will see how to remotely connect to the Raspberry Pi’s terminal on Windows.
The terminal will allow us to setup our Raspberry Pi using commands.
In this tutorial, we are going to:
- Download and install putty
- Install bonjour service (if needed)
- Learn how to use autocompletion
We will use putty to connect to our Raspberry Pi SSH terminal.
- Plug your Raspberry Pi into your router with an ethernet cable
- Download putty here : putty.madnerd.org
- Start putty.exe
- Enter your hostname : raspberrypi.local
- Click on Open
If you see this error message :”Unable to open connection to raspberrypi.local”
This means that bonjour services is not installed on your computer or that your Raspberry Pi is not linked to your network.
You can download it here : bonjour.madnerd.org
If there are one thing to remember when you use the terminal is if you don’t know what to type :
This will enable autocompletion.
If you type : power puis and press [TAB]
This will complete the command with poweroff
If you type: re and press [TAB]
Nothing will happen, as there are multiple possibilities
Press [TAB] again, and you will see all the possible commands :
read readonly red rename.ul resizepart
readarray readprofile regdbdump renice resolvconf
readelf realpath remove-shell reset return
readlink reboot rename resize2fs rev
Here we can see the command reboot, we just need to type reb and press [TAB] again to complete the command.
