SSH to Raspberry Pi

In order to use command line on the Raspberry, we need to connect to it via SSH.

On Windows:

Download an SSH client (PuTTY is a free and popular client which you can download here).

Detailed instructions on using it could be found here – SSH using Windows.

On Mac/Linux:

This is easier, as you can SSH from the shell in Mac OS / Linux – SSH using Mac/Linux.


Note – theĀ user/password combination is different for every OS distribution.

  • Raspbian – pi/raspberry
  • OpenELEC – root/openelec
  • OSMC – osmc/osmc
