VNC instructions for your Pi remote desktop @Raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi

Directconnect1

Check out these useful instructions for your Pi remote desktop from Dave at RaspberryPi.org:

Hi folks;
Allen was just asking me about the VNC demo I gave at Picademy and I thought I would just do a follow up post here for everyone.

  • Step 1: Setup and install
    So the aim will be to install the VNC server software on Pi and the VNC viewer software on the host computer (which will show the Pi desktop).
    Read and follow the guide here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/document … access/vnc
    The guide includes instructions to make the VNC server start automatically when the Pi boots up (recommended).
  • Step 2: If necessary, configure the Pi to give out an IP address
    This is the method you’ll want to use if you have untrusting network administrators who refuse to allow a Raspberry Pi to be connected to the main school network.

I know this looks like loads to do but I’ve just put a lot of detail so you can’t go wrong 🙂

This way each Raspberry Pi will be directly connecting to a host computer using a single Ethernet cable, thus making a completely isolated point to point network between the two and therefore your network administrators shouldn’t have any cause to complain. Note: you don’t need a cross over cable for this, a standard cable will work because the Pi Ethernet port auto-switches the transmit and receive pins.

Firstly we’ll need to install some software on the Pi, so for this first part you’ll need to connect it to a LAN for Internet access. We’re going to make the Pi Ethernet port behave in a similar way to a home router. This means assigning a static IP address to it and installing a DHCP service (dnsmasq) that will respond to address requests from the host computer.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
