I am trying to set up my Nextcloud box without having a monitor or screen available.
I have read in different websites how to set up a wired connection between the Ubuntu laptop that I am using and the Rpi that I am using for the box (the simplest method is this http://mitchtech.net/vnc-setup-on-raspberry-pi-from-ubuntu/)
The issue that I have is that I cannot see anything connected to my ethernet port.
The output of ifconfig is:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:90:f5:f5:e2:8c
inet6 addr: fe80::290:f5ff:fef5:e28c/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:43 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:469 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:8875 (8.8 KB) TX bytes:101023 (101.0 KB)
so I cannot find the IP for the Rpi that I want to connect.
Further down I see an IP for the wlan0:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr a0:88:69:31:33:d2
inet addr:192.168.1.101 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
So i tried to connect us the 192.168.1.xx to look for the Rpi and I find it on 192.168.1.254
Now trying to connect using ssh email@example.com prompts the possibility of typing in the password. I try “raspberry” as suggested, but it does not work, also tried several but none works.
I have never used the Rpi before, if not with a touchscreen that I had before. But the drivers were on a different SD card, and the little screen does not work with the OS in the supplied SD.
Can you help me understand how this works and how I should connect the laptop and Rpi in order to be able to configure the nextcloud box, without having access to an external monitor?
Thank you in advance for your help.
