headless operation?

Mar 26, 2019 - 10:16 AM

  • I'm thinking of adding this to four Raspberry Pis that I already have.

    • Can Atomic Pi run headless (ssh via a wired ethernet connection) out of the box?
    • Can it run VNC so that I can access it via a virtual desktop with a desktop computer?
  • You can ssh in ok, BUT you need the default password, which is only (easily) displayed using an HDMI monitor. So you have to plug in a monitor at least for a few minutes. You can also install a different OS image and use it's password. https://www.digital-loggers.com/downloads/index.html#API_IMAGES

    I haven't used VNC on it as I rarely use gui, but the vncserver package does exist and can be installed. Should be fine.
