Connect remotely to your Raspberry Pi

You can connect remotely to your Raspberry Pi in headless mode. If you are using your Raspberry Pi with a connected monitor and keyboard, proceed to Configure the Raspberry Pi camera.

  1. Before connecting to your Raspberry Pi device remotely, do one of the following to determine its IP address:

    • If you have access to your network's Wi-Fi router, look at the connected Wi-Fi devices. Find the device named Raspberry Pi to find your device's IP address.

    • If you don't have access to your network's Wi-Fi router, you can use other software to find devices on your network. Fing is a popular application that is available for both Android and iOS devices. You can use the free version of this application to find the IP addresses of devices on your network.

  2. When you know the IP address of the Raspberry Pi device, you can use any terminal application to connect.

    • On macOS or Linux, use ssh:

      ssh pi@<IP address>
    • On Windows, use PuTTY, a free SSH client for Windows.

    For a new installation of Raspbian, the user name is pi, and the password is raspberry. We recommend that you change the default password.
