SSHing into your Raspberry Pi

This guide will show you how to SSH into your Raspberry Pi from within Windows. This assumes you already know your IP address - if you don't, see the following guide first: http://www.cpdforteachers.com/resources/finding-the-ip-address-of-your-raspberrypi. You also need the following zip file downloaded and extracted onto your computer: http://cpdforteachers.com/downloads/PuttyPortable.zip

 

1) Navigate to your PuttyPortable folder or wherever you extracted the zip file to.
