If you have ever tried to connect to your headless Raspberry Pi over a network via SSH, you know that it can be hard to find the IP address. We created a cross-platform tool that allows you to easily find and connect to a Raspberry Pi that is attached to your network via Ethernet or WiFi.

The Adafruit Pi Finder also allows you to launch a bootstrap process on your Pi that will install services such as Bonjour/Zeroconf, samba, and also help you setup WiFi modules and the Raspberry Pi's hostname.

Note: This project shares a coincidental name with the Pi Finder by Ivan X, a great Mac OS X utility that also helps locate a headless Raspberry Pi on your local network. Please visit Ivan's site for the other Pi Finder and other fine Raspberry Pi tutorials and projects!
