Ever found yourself stuck in the wilderness, armed with only an Ubuntu laptop, an ethernet cable, a micro usb power cable and a Raspberry pi – and let’s face it, who hasn’t been in such a scenario? Well be stuck no more!
It’s possible to directly SSH into the Pi only using its ethernet port, allowing you to not only gain access to the terminal (and desktop if needed) but to share your laptop’s wifi connection with the Pi directly, using Ubuntu’s standard networking software. This is a very neat solution in comparison to the keyboards, TV’s and routers traditionally used to interface with a Pi.
This is just a shout-out to my first guide attempt… The comments added by users on Instructables are very useful so it isn’t worth while copying over the same information to this site. Check out the video explaining the button here:
In good tradition, I’ll start this project with those somewhat eager words… This’ll be my first ‘proper’ website so it’s as much of a project for me as any of the others I should (all being well) collate here. And who knows, maybe some day I’ll post a site building tutorial on this blog.
