Hello i was wondering if there was a way to send data from one raspberry pi to another when the pi's are NOT on the same wifi or network. For Example: send data from one pi at my parents house to another pi at my own house. Any info will be helpful. VNC Connect: https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/d...

Foolishly, I don't have a back-up from before starting this, so I would have to start again. Need the Pi up and running for the next few weeks, so I guess it will have to wait.

Rasbian Stretch, install HPLIP from repository not from the website: sudo apt update sudo apt install hplip I've just tried this, and received a message to say that it's already installed.

Re: USB networking for secure file sharing

For the Pi Zero and Zero W there is the Ethernet Hub and USB Hub w/ Micro USB OTG Connector . I would expect that SSH and SFTP should be sufficient for most people unless one does not want to use a wireless network. But using that prevent the pi working as a USB gadget so doesn't fit the OP's requi...

Even an old x86 laptop is probably more powerful the a Pi3B+. And it is also quite probable that it is Windows and not the hardware that is making the laptop slow.
