Raspberry Pi Linux LESSON 18: Connect from Windows Using Putty SSH Telnet Client

We are now ready to begin connecting to the Raspberry Pi remotely from a windows based machine. This lesson shows you how to install Putty, a SSH Telnet Client, onto your windows machine, and then connect to the Raspberry Pi from anywhere on your network. You will end up with a Terminal window on your desktop computer that is connected to your Raspberry Pi. Remote login is one of the powerful features of Linux.

  1. Dear mr Paul, i really like your website. I have been following your lessons, starting at lesson nr1 Arduino, then al the way to Arduino with Python and now until lesson 18 Raspberry Pi, and i must say, i already learned a lot. Thank you for that! Just a little question: in lesson 18 i installed putty for a windows machine, but what to download for a apple mac laptop?

  2. I found your site looking for Raspberry Pi tutorials. Although I have been using Ubuntu for 2 years I still learned new things working through the linux lessons. I like the concept of divorcing oneself from a separate Rpi screen. I can now run my Rpi on batteries with no wires. One of my initial goals when purchasing the Rpi.

  3. your lessons are the best ever….would be great to get some lessons on image processing with pi using open CV

  4. Lovely, I cannot expect anything more than this.. I am a traditional windows user, trying to learn basics of linux. I am at the right place.

  5. Paul, you teach clearly, and provide useful information. The lessons are often slow for me, but I wouldn’t worry about that. YouTube users can adjust for your speed by repeating or skipping ahead.

    Thank you for making these videos available.

  6. Hello sir,

    I have gone through all of the lessons from 1st to this video.
    One thing I am unable to understand that what is the method to generate the Linux terminal of respbery pi on monitors, and where the other end of ethernet cable connected. Please reply. I will wait for your reply.

  7. not being able to ping ping:icmp open socket: operation not permitted any suggestions on how to fix this thank you

  8. Hello Paul

    These videos are excellent. Thank you very much. I can not get Putty to work . Im on WIFI with both my Pi 3.B and my laptop, do you know if that should be a problem?

    Best Regards

  9. Thanks, Got this to work on a raspberry Pi Zero W but only after enabling SSH in the Pi configuration menu.

  10. Hi Paul
    You are an amazing teacher. I have really learnt a lot from your videos. I wanted to ask you another thing. How can we remotely access our Raspberry Pi from any where in the world considering that it is connected to the internet.

  11. I’m starting this lesson in July 2017 and the Raspberry Pi 2 isn’t readily available, so I purchased the model 3 from Amazon; the kit Paul recommends, but the model 3.

    Ran into problems with Lesson 18 after installing Putty on my Windows machine. When ssh’ing into the Pi, I received a network error. Did a search on ‘the’ Google and stackoverflow helped me with the solution.

    On the Pi, start the ssh service with this command

    sudo service ssh start

    After I did this, Putty allowed me to connect per Paul’s instructions.

    Paul, keep up the good work! We are all learning a ton from you!

  12. i think this lesson should be placed at the beginning of the tutorial. it will be easier for people of operate on their windows machines

  13. i did not find a good teacher in my life like you. You are really v.v.amazing professor . I pray for you . Thanks sir, carry on….
