    Secure shell (ssh) to the RPi, More Geek than VNC
     
    Secure shell (ssh):

    Mac users have ssh built in.  After opening a terminal ssh syntax looks like this;

    ssh pi@144.167.236.432

    Windows users:

    For ssh, install the ssh client you prefer.  Here are some examples of ssh clients for windows;
