How to access your Raspberry Shake’s computer via ssh

Over the network

Step 0: Determine your Raspberry Shake’s IP

We recommend using Find your Raspberry Shake’s IP with Fing. Window’s users could also use Bonjour: Special Note for Windows users: http://raspberryshake.local Work Around. But a normal arp-scan would also work.

Step 1: Open a terminal and ssh into the Raspberry Shake

$ ssh myshake@<IP>

For example,

$ ssh myshake@


It is often possible to just use:

$ ssh myshake@raspberryshake.local

You will be prompted for the password, please type it and hit <ENTER>. Default ssh-password: myshake. You should change this!: See Ready, Set, Get Hacked! Security and Raspberry Shake.

If you are a Windows user, you would use PuTTY for this step.
