Boot the Pi to a command prompt.
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt
add

Code: Select all

ip=169.254.3.14
to the end of the one line in that file, DO NOT split the line.

Wire the eth0 with a cat 5 to you laptop (no x-over needed).

Reboot your Pi and use PuTTY to connect to 169.254.3.14

If you set up internet sharing on the windows machine and leave the Pi with default settings it should connect to the internet through the windows machine as well, but you'll need to interrogate the windows machine to find the IP address its doled out to the Pi to ssh into it. Far easier to connect the Pi to the router.

How many ways of skinning a cat do you need ?
