Make Raspberry Pi Files Visible On A PC #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Exposing Raspberry Pi’s network setting files to /boot so that they are visible on a PC via Martin’s Hobby Projects
I needed to clone my current Raspberry Pi SD card image to use for another headless project (on another network), but then realized the network settings were my home ones. I had access to a PC only, so could not (easily) modify the settings for that other Pi to connect to the other network. To avoid that for the future, I’ll just move the network setting files to /boot (which is accessible on a PC) and make a Symbolic Link to these in the original location:
With this change applied, I’ll be able to plug in the SD card into a PC, modify the network settings and get the Pi connected in no time. Security-wise this is probably not a good idea, but I am taking the risk anyway.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
