Section 2: SSH and Samba on the Raspberry Pi.

Adding SSH and Samba onto the Raspberry Pi.

Now it’s time to add SSH and Samba. For those who do not know what that is. SSH is a secure shell system that allows us to remote into our pi from any computer capable of loading an SSH client such as PuTTY onto their system. SSH can also be used for FTP transfers as a way of uploading files such as apk’s and images to your Raspberry Pi so you can then access them via ADB to your Ouya. But instead of SSH-FTP, we’re also going to load Samba which is a windows network sharing protocol allowing us seamless transfers from our PC or MAC over wireless to our Raspberry Pi.

Now, for those who are using the Raspberry Pi as a desktop or don’t care to use it in a headless manner like we do having it hooked up in our living room to the Ouya. You can probably skip this tutorial all together! However, for those who are using it like a headless unit then read on as we provide all of the instructions down below.
