Is there any way to tell the difference
by looking at the board ?
Thank You !
You can if you can ssh to it using PuTTY from your Windows system or JuiceSSH from your phone.
Can I do that with a RPi 3B+ ? ( no Windows or phone (other than land-line) )DougieLawson wrote: ↑Tue Dec 03, 2019 8:56 pmYou can if you can ssh to it using PuTTY from your Windows system or JuiceSSH from your phone.
With plain Raspbian adding a "ssh" or "ssh.txt" file to the partion that's visible to Windows will enable SSH. A tool like Fing will find a Raspberry on your network (if you have mDNS then a domain name of raspberrypi.local may work). Since you won't have configured WiFi you will need to wire it to your router.
You can wire a Raspberry to your laptop (with Windows internet connection sharing) and it will get an address from 192.168.137.xxx/24 (there's ways to scan that subnet on Windows).
So your assertion that you can't use a system with no video is false.
