SSH over USB with Raspberry Pi 3B?

Thu Sep 27, 2018 7:16 pm

I want to control my headless Raspberry Pi 3B via a USB cable connection to my PC. I know how to do this (and it works really well) for the Pi Zero W, but following the same instructions for the 3B doesn't work.

USB requires a Host / Client relationship.


The RPi Zero can run in either Host or Client (on the go / gadget mode)

The RPi 3B can like your PC can only be a USB Host, therefore what you wish to achieve is not feasible....

....unless you use a USBNET Cable:
