How a headless Raspberry Pi can tell you its IP address @Rasperry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

FUEHMONIBYWZAHE MEDIUM

Handy tutorial from instructables user dblando.

Nevertheless, one thing kept me from setting up Pis (Tau?) all over the place. If I want to run the Raspberry Pi headless — no monitor, no keyboard, no mouse, just remote login via Internet — how do I find out its IP address?

I learned of one way to solve the problem: set up a startup script where it speaks the IP address aloud. Then I figured out a second way: run a startup script that displays the IP address on a 16×2 LCD screen.

Neither takes long to configure. Each makes the device easier to set up for remote situations or for hiding in a pocket with a USB battery and becoming a walking performance piece.

  1. Simple way is to have it register it’s name with dynamic DNS. Set up a Raspberry pi to be an internal DNS/DHCP host that allows dynamic updates from your network. Integrate DHCP and DNS, then when the unit joins the network it automatically registers it’s name with DNS.

    At which time you just SSH to the name.
