Raspberry Pi remote access - overview

These articles describe how you can access your Raspberry Pi remotely from a PC.

This also allows you to run the Pi “headless”, without a monitor or keyboard/mouse. This is ideal if you don’t have the spare kit, or maybe not even the desk space to set them up. All you need is a spare network connection and a USB phone charger for power.

If you are using your Pi to learn about networking, Linux, web servers etc, it is just as easy to run up a terminal window on your PC. This way of working is also idea if you want to connect two or more PIs in a cluster to make your own mini data centre!
