I’m trying to connect to a MacBook that does not have an ethernet or hdmi connector. The book give the following instruction, but does not say which type of cable and into which port on the Pi 4??? I am guessing I have to use HDMI port 0 on the Pi and maybe a display port adapter on into the Mac?
In Mac OS X and Linux, you can use the default Terminal window to establish an SSH communication because SSH comes in all Unix-based OSes. Follow these steps:
- 1) Make sure your Raspberry Pi is powered up with the microSD card inserted.
- 2) Open a new Terminal window on your computer.
I’m sorry, but I don’t understand your issue. You don’t need to connect the Pi to the computer. The computer will talk to the Raspberry Pi via SSH, which is a wireless communication protocol.
You need to know the username and hostname you defined when you installed the operating system on the microSD card.
For example, in my case, the username is pi, and the hostname is raspberrypi. But, yours might be different if you set different names.
You need to open a new terminal window on MAC OS.
Then, run the following command to establish an SSH connection:
sudo ssh user@hostname
For example, in my case, it would be:
sudo ssh pi@raspberrypi
Then, follow the instructions mentioned in the eBook.
Let me know if this is clear or if you need further help.
