I just got my mycroft mark1 yesterday and I’m very excited.
I was wondering if there is an easier way to regularly ssh into mycroft mark1 from my desktop (osx).
So far I asked Mycroft what his IP address was, and when it was given
ssh pi@*ip* and reached a terminal.
Remembering the IP would be annoying with regular logons though, and I saw mention somewhere of someone doing something like
ssh email@example.com. I wondered if I could do a similar thing. I saw my mark1’s hostname is ‘mark_1’, but
ssh pi@mark_1 does not work for me in osx terminal.
One way you could do that would be to add login details to your ssh config at
you’d need to generate a private/public key pair on your mac (you can google that if you don’t have one) and add the public key (
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa_Ward9250.pub) to the
~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the mark1.
then you could just type
to be able to use
mark1.local you would need a router with DNS for local hosts, but i believe it might be a bit out of scope here.
