Putty Configuration : Connecting Raspberry Pi to Laptop

Simon Tatham created PuTTY, an easy-to-use telnet and SSH application for Windows. For connecting to UNIX servers and other telnet/SSH sites over the internet, CUIT recommends PuTTY. 


PuTTY is a telnet client that can be used instead of telnet. SSH’s main benefit is that it establishes a secure, encrypted connection with the remote system. It’s also compact and self-contained, and it fits on a floppy disc. This makes it suitable for securely accessing Sussex systems from anywhere on the Internet.This guide will walk you through the process of configuring PuTTY to connect the Raspberry Pi to a laptop. Please read the instructions carefully.So let’s get started

Step 1 : Download Prerequisites

  • You’ll need putty for this, So download Putty for this

Download link

  • After you’ve clocked the download dialogue, you’ll be asked to select the sort of installer you want, which you can do based on your system (32 bit, 64 Bit Windows or Unix tar ball)

Download type

Note-Before we proceed with the rest of the process, you must first place an SSH called Blank file on the Raspberry Pi’s BOOT sector from your PC.

  • Simply download the putty and install it on your computer. We’ll now proceed to the connecting process after we’ve opened it.

Step 2 : Getting IP of your Raspberry Pi

  • Put your IP address in the box and don’t worry about changing the port; simply click on SSH as indicated in the image above.

click yes on dialog

  • Click yes as shown in the above image.
  • Default login id and password must be entered.
  • As soon as it’s linked. Type “pi” as the username and “raspberry” as the password (don’t worry if you don’t see the password when typing).

When you’re connected, you’ll see the screen above.

After the connection, you’ll see something similar to this. You’ve completed the task. This terminal, which is the same as the raspberry pi terminal, can be used to access your pi. You can use it to perform a variety of things. You may view your Raspberry Pi screen on your laptop by following the steps below.

Step 3 : Connecting VNC through Putty

To access the configuration menu, type command.

sudo raspi-config

  • Then, on the terminal, type the above command.

Config menu

  • Simply go to Interfacing options> VNC > Enable it on the Raspberry Pi’s setup panel. Simply restart your Pi after that.

Interfacing options


click yes

Once VNC is enabled, you may enter your Raspberry Pi’s IP address into the VNC viewer and view it on your laptop or phone screen. If you don’t want to use VNC, you can use your Raspberry Pi directly through its terminal and run tasks. That concludes today’s blog.
