I have a RPi 2.
I have created boot image on 8 gig card, Raspbian Jessie, 1-11-2017.
RPi boots fine and I can ping the Pi (192.168.0.104) from my Win7 machine.
I have used Putty many times in the past, so I believe that I know how to connect, but I cannot connect. I get:
Network Error: Connection refused.
I am guessing that the SSH Server is not running by default in the Jessie distro.
So I figured that I cannot access headless initially, and therefore have to connect KB and Mon.
I purchased a HDMI to VGA adapter so that I could do this with a VGA monitor that I have, but I do not get any video.
Any help is much appreciated.
Any product suggestions on a HDMI-to-VGA adapter that actually works would be great, or alternately, a cheap HDMI monitor that works, is much appreciated.
My goal is to operate the Pi headless with Putty and Windows Remote Desktop (with xrdp server running on Pi).
