For Linux/Unix Users¶

  1. Locate and open the Terminal on your Linux/Unix system.

  2. Ensure your Raspberry Pi is connected to the same network. Verify this by typing ping <hostname>.local. For example:

    ping raspberrypi.local

    You should see the Raspberry Pi’s IP address if it’s connected to the network.

    • If the terminal shows a message like Ping request could not find host pi.local. Please check the name and try again., double-check the hostname you’ve entered.

    • If you’re unable to retrieve the IP address, inspect your network or WiFi settings on the Raspberry Pi.

  3. Initiate an SSH connection by typing ssh <username>@<hostname>.local or ssh <username>@<IP address>. For instance:

    ssh pi@raspberrypi.local
  4. On your first login, you’ll encounter a security message. Type yes to proceed.

    The authenticity of host 'raspberrypi.local (2400:2410:2101:5800:635b:f0b6:2662:8cba)' can't be established.
    ED25519 key fingerprint is SHA256:oo7x3ZSgAo032wD1tE8eW0fFM/kmewIvRwkBys6XRwg.
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])?
  5. Enter the password you previously set. Note that for security reasons, the password won’t be visible as you type.


    It’s normal for the password characters not to display in the terminal. Just ensure to enter the correct password.

  6. Once you’ve successfully logged in, your Raspberry Pi is now connected, and you’re ready to proceed to the next step.
