That's not true. You can activate ssh on first boot by creating a file ssh (aka /boot/ssh) in the root of the FAT partition on the SDCard.nielsx wrote:It was full of frustrations these days for me because SSH is no more available by default in the last update of Raspbian (november 2016), ...
It does work, but there are a few gotchas.LaurieRams wrote:I found that using Go Server on the Mac doesn't work as in vnc://IP_address on my mac
I used Real VNC which works really well from here - https://www.realvnc.com/download/
I assume this works if both of the following are true:DougieLawson wrote:That's not true.

You should try -v -vv -vvv with ssh to see what sort of errors you are seeing. Before you try to remotely log in, make sure you can ssh from the pi into itself.royito wrote:With my pi hooked up to my tv, I checked its IP address by using the command sudo ifconfig, and I double checked that I was entering the correct address.

This is no longer true. Recent versions of raspian (I'm using "2017-04-10-raspbian-jessie") has ssh INACTIVE by default and you have to activate this before being able to login with ssh.fearless wrote:@azat385: I'm fairly certain ssh is enabled by default.

Yes indeed. I understand that in the next version, as a safety and security measure, it will be necessary to create a file in /boot named:Thank you for confirming that the documentation provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation is both necessary and correct:

How did you figure that out?
I thought Real VNC was built-in to Raspbian? What did you have to install? All you normally need to do is enable it in interfaces.
When I create a new user I also add it to all the same groups as the "pi" user. Enter groups pi to see the default groups.flagtrax wrote: ↑Fri Dec 15, 2017 3:22 pmI created a new user, provided sudo privileges, and was able to log on using Putty, but I could not log on with VNC viewer. "Access is denied". Fortunately I had not yet deleted the "pi" user and was still able to log on with that. Can anyone explain what's going on and how to correct my error? Thanks (you can probably tell I'm quite new to the RPi world)
I found that to be true after the fact. I was apparently following an older instructional on the process. I wish I could tell the age of some of the instructionals out there, I've suffered similar with arduino and ESP 8266 modules.I thought Real VNC was built-in to Raspbian? What did you have to install?
