Raspbian is the OS that comes with a regular Raspberry Pi. It assumes you have a keyboard and a screen directly connected to the Pi. While you can set up Raspbian for remote login, it is not set up as such by default. The hostname is raspberrypi (raspberrypi.local)
Raspbian For Robots is our own version of Raspbian which contains all the code for our robots, and is pre-configured for remote login. The hostname is dex (dex.local)
DexterOS is an easier to get started with, for people who just want the robot to work out of the box (nothing to install on their computer, etc…)
DexterOS does not offer SSH access at all, Raspbian does not offer it by default, and Raspbian for Robots has SSH pre-installed.
To know what you have, I need to ask you a couple of questions.
- Which kit did you buy? Beginner or Advanced?
- When the GoPiGo is up and powered, do you see a new wifi access point from your computer? It would be named GoPiGo.
- What exactly did you mean in your first post when you said ‘I am able to make a connection to GopiGo via SSH by connecting my laptop to my GopiGo through an Ethernet cable.’ If you can connect via SSH and ethernet, that would be the same as connecting with Putty. I’m sorry to say but I’m getting confused here about what you’ve been able to achieve so far and what’s not working.
