Remote control your pi using SSH #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
The MagPi has a useful tutorial for remote controlling your pi with SSH.
SSH (also known as ‘secure shell’) is an encrypted networking technology that enables you to manage computers from the command line over a network.
SSH is handy if you want to quickly connect to your Raspberry Pi from a terminal on another computer. It’s also ideal for lightweight distro installations that don’t have an interface. It’s especially useful when creating Internet of Things (IoT) projects, as these may be embedded and not require a desktop.
We’ve already looked at VNC (Virtual Network Computing), and Secure Shell offers a similar service. But while VNC shares the entire desktop, SSH works from the command line.
