I wanted to open a terminal in the Raspberry Pi from Windows but Windows does not have a native SSH client. The fast fix was configuring Telnet. Although this protocol is not ciphered, I don’t think I would have a security problem using it in my home network.
I followed this tutorial to configuring the Pi:
- sudo apt-get install telnetd
- Rebooted the Pi
Windows 7 kind of have the Telnet client but you need to “turn it on”:
Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off
Usually this installation is very fast and easy.
After everything was set up, I needed to find the IP address of the Pi. It can be done using the following command:
After that, I was able to run the terminal from the Command Prompt using the following command:
- C:\> Telnet 192.168.2.28
