Communicating between 2 Raspberry Pis using sshpass
Communicating between 2 Raspberry Pis using sshpass
10 September 2016 | Updated 15 July 2017 | Renier Delport |
sshpass is a Linux software package that can be used to establish a direct (secure) connection between two Linux operated computers. This connection allows 'remote' access to a 'local' computer to run commands 'locally'. Communicating between 2 Raspberry Pi's using sshpass will show you how. Read more...
