Raspberry Pi 3 over VNC

Geeky fun…today I setup my Raspberry Pi 3 so I could control it through my Mac.

I previously installed Raspbian on the Pi 3 and also had the WiFi setup so it would connect to my home network.

Today I plugged the Pi 3 in to the wall (powering it up) and then, SSH’d to the Pi 3 using Terminal on my Mac. I used SSH to install a VNC client on the Pi 3 and get that configured. Once that was done I installed the VNC Viewer app on my Mac and I can now play with the Pi 3 without needing another keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Overall pretty simple, but still geeky fun.
