Just configuring my new Pi4.
Never used Linux before so following instructions carefully. Currently, have the create identity command running which will take a long time, if i shut the SSH terminal window and shut down my PC… Will i have to restart the process or can i log back in and see where it’s go to ?
You shouldnt run identity on the Pi itself you should create it on a more powerful PC. The program will stop if you close the SSH.
but you can use the program “screen” to keep things running in background.
However, I agree that you should run the identity generation on your desktop pc
not sure i know how to copy it back over to the pi with limit Linux skills?
You can use winscp to copy it over to the PI
are you able to assist with commands how to copy back@
ok, what folder does it need to do in as I’ve connect via filezilla so can drag and drop now
It can go into your user home folder your going to point the config where ever the identity ends up being anyways.
which one, don’t see a user folder anywhere?
Its in the “home” dir
Yes exactly your user is pi
It doesnt matter where your going to be pointing the config to where every it is.
ok so this path ok?
i’ve copied it over
Yes this is fine. Like I said you can put it anywhere you want it.
Are you running docker? or are you running binary? If your running with binary that is the default location that the identity needs to be.
just following the instructions here.
So maybe not
Not sure I understand what your trying to do? Are you trying to re authorize your identity on the pi?
