Thanks for the replies. It’s very strange though, I can only see them in email, not in this forum at all. I’ve tried viewing it logged in and out, different browser, etc.
It seems either you have some aggressive caching going on, or perhaps posts from ‘Administrator’ cannot be seen by us mere mortals.
Actually, scratch that because I can’t see my own post either. So it must be some caching on the server end. Anyway, I’ve included your replies here just so others can see it.
“Plug one end of your ethernet cable into your Raspberry Pi, and the other into your computer ethernet card.”
That’s correct. And this works with a standard Ethernet cord, no need for a crossover cord or anything. I originally used a simple cord I picked up at Best Buy.
Did you use the BrickPi image we have for download?
What are the lights next to the Ethernet port doing after the RPi is plugged in?
I hate to ask this, but is your RPi powered? How?
SSH and VNC are enabled by default on the BrickPi image.

To answer your questions, yes, I’m using the BrickPi image. The lights are flashing and it looks like it normally would when I boot it.
I’ve gotten around the issue by plugging my raspi into my router and connecting through my laptop, which is on the same network but through wifi. Unfortunately, I cannot get my wifi dongle to work with your BrickPi image but at least wired works. My wifi dongle (called WiPi from newark or adafruit, can’t recall), works from a regular wheezy image. I may just end up modifying that if I can’t get wifi working. If I still have trouble, I’ll post a new thread for that.
