Raspberry Pi SSH

Access Raspberry Pi directly from Windows PC

Usually beginners require a display, keyboard and mouse for using Raspberry Pi. But being a linux based system, the Pi can be accessed through a variety of methods like SSH (check our Raspberry Pi SSH tutorial), VNC (check our Raspberry Pi VNC tutorial) etc.. But these methods require an already existing network consisting of a router or other network devices. It would be easier to directly connect the Pi to the computer and work with it without any additional hardwares like router. [...]

Virtual Network Computing (VNC), is a graphical desktop sharing system used to remotely control a computer's desktop from another computer. It uses Remote Frame Buffer Protocol (RFB). It transmits keyboard strokes and mouse movement from the controller to the remote host and relays back the graphical screen updates from the host, over a network like Ethernet. Installing a VNC server like TightVNC on Raspberry Pi enables the user to remotely access the desktop of Pi and perform necessary operations. This [...]
