At home, I can connect my Pi to my router and find out the IP it gets assigned easily. Away from home, I would like to be able to connect to my Pi with a laptop and access it via SSH. I cannot setup a static IP as I am ultimately going to be connecting to it to public wifi.
Since my laptop isn't running a DHCP server when I connect the Pi defaults to a 169.254.x.x address. The only way I've been able to get that address is by plugging in a monitor.
Is there anyway that I can set what the default 169.254.x.x address will be? Or does anyone have any other ideas for finding out the Pi's IP address?
