Geek Gran learns Linux jargon – SSH

The lovely new MagPi (Issue 47) for July 2016 contains an article on robot kits on page 84-85.


This is a previous edition of The MagPi

A previous issue in January 2016 (Issue 41) reviewed another robot kit (page 82) and I was pleased to say that I could understand what they were getting at, in almost all of the text.

The new article this July was not so easy to understand. It contains the acronym SSH with respect to joining the robot to the Pi.  SSH means Secure Shell and seems to be something about sending the program code over a wifi connection to the robot. It looks like there’s a particular SSH for Linux-type operating systems (OS) such as the Raspian OS used on my Pi.

When I’ve found out more about this I’ll add to this post.
