You need to access the Raspberry Pi's command prompt in order set up A2SERVER for network boot, and do other stuff.
The default username is "pi" and default password is "apple2". If you don't have a screen and keyboard attached, you can:
Log in via SSH from another computer
On a Mac, open Terminal (in the Utilities folder of the Applications folder), and type
ssh email@example.com to connect. If you have Windows, you can install Bonjour Print Services, and then use PuTTY to connect to the address "raspberrypi.local".
If that doesn't work, or you don't want to install Bonjour Print Services for Windows, you will need to find your Pi's IP address and use that instead. If you have a Mac, you can use Pi Finder to help with this; if you have Windows, you can use Advanced IP Scanner. Once logged in, you can type
showmac to see your Pi's MAC (Ethernet) address, and you can use this to reserve an IP address in your router so the Pi gets the same IP address every time.
Log in from an Apple II
There are a few different options for logging in from an Apple II. They are:
- Apple II serial: With the appropriate cables, you can use a terminal communications program such as ProTERM, Spectrum, or Z-Link to log into and control your Raspberry Pi. All this is set up automatically with A2CLOUD, so head over there to read about how to install it and find out what cables you need to get.
- Apple II Ethernet: If you have an Uthernet Card in an Apple IIgs, you can log into your Raspberry Pi with Spectrum using VT100 emulation (once logged in, type
TERM=vt100). To make this work you will need to first log into your Pi by one of the above methods, and type
sudo apt-get -y install telnetd (you may not wish to do this if your Pi is on a network with any untrusted users, as Telnet is unencrypted). Also, note your Pi's IP address (you can type
showip once logged in) so you can provide it to Spectrum Internet Suite; you might want to put a DHCP reservation into your router (type
showmac to get your Pi's MAC address) so you don't have to figure it out again.
