Yes you have a Laptop unfortunately no details of Operating SystemMrsKSayers wrote:Hi,
I'm trying to connect my Pi to a laptop using VNC without the laptop/PC being online e.g. a stand alone system.
The only room I can use my Pi's in at school is a network room which is off the school network so the computers have no connectivity to other machines.
I'm wanting to start a Pi club after the October break but without this working I will only have about 5 I can use which will make a very boring club! I've got loads of kids wanting to come and about another 15 pi's I can use if I can get VNC working.
First and foremost by default Raspbian Wheezy is a DHCP Client and plugging in a Ethernet Cable connected to a Router or PC/Laptop it seeks a DHCP Server.MrsKSayers wrote:Sorry me bad!
Windows (I believe the school machines are 7)
TightVNC runs off the Pi (raspbarian) and implies a name of raspberrypi:1 (which I believe means name of raspberry pi with port 1) but when I use remote desktop or tight VNC on the PC it says it can't find it or if I change to the suggested port of 5901 I get actively refuses the connection.
I can connect to the internet using my LAN plug and the ethernet at home but the issue is at school when there is no connection to pi or pc so neither have an IP other than the 127.0.0.1 IP.
I was under the impression that there is an alternate methodology under these circumstances.
Code: Select all
iface eth0 inet static address 169.254.3.14 netmask 16
If you set Static IP on the School Laptop and Pi as above then it will work, but if at home you use Ethernet to connect to a Modem / Router then you may find it will no longer connect, that is why suggested DHCP. Good luck and a good learning experience..MrsKSayers wrote:Thank you!
That's more what I was thinking
