Since we're using the Pi in a headless configuration, we'll use an FTP connection to transfer files between our computer and the Pi.

Windows Instructions

Download and install WinSCP

 

Open WinSCP and start a New Session

Select an SFTP connection, fill in the IP address of your Pi, set the username to Pi, and put in your password.

Your Pi's IP address is on the screen of the BrainCraft. You can also use the hostname address, e.g. "raspberrypi.local" ([email protected]).

Mac Instructions

Download and install FileZilla. When it's done installing, open the program.

Type sftp:// followed by the IP address of your Pi. Set the username to pi and put in your password.

Your Pi's IP address is on the screen of the BrainCraft. You can also use the hostname address, e.g. "raspberrypi.local" ([email protected]).
