in #raspberry4 years ago (edited)

Hello again.
Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network. The best known example application is for remote login to computer systems by users.

Now that we know what its ssh its an protocol that will help us to connect with our Pi remotely, so let's get started.

  1. First we need to install the SSH, and the command to install ssh its :
    sudo apt-get install ssh

  2. Now we need to download a SSH client that will help us to remotely connect to our Pi. The most used app its Putty and you can get your version from here https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html

  3. Open Putty on the host name put your Pi ip address the default protocol its 22 so you need to hit the Open button at the first use it will popup a new window you just click ok/yes and you are now able to connect to your Pi by typing your Pi User and Pass

If you dont know your pi's Ip address you can scan your network using a ip-scanner and it will show you the ip address of the raspberry ;) you can download from here this http://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/index13.php

Enjoy!
