The instructions below walk you through assembling and connecting your TinyPilot kit.
Apply the thermal tape to the top of the case.
If your package included a single piece of thermal tape, tear it into three pieces (one large, two small) along the perforations.
Insert the TinyPilot microSD card into the Pi's microSD slot.
The microSD is already configured with TinyPilot's software.
If everything is connected correctly, you should see the Pi's power LED shine a solid red. The disk activity LED will flash green intermittently as the device runs.
You can use any USB port. The USB 3.0 ports (blue) and the USB 2.0 ports (black) perform identically.
Depending on the target computer's output, you can use a HDMI to HDMI cable, a DisplayPort to HDMI cable, or a DVI to HDMI cable.
Connect TinyPilot to your local network by connecting an Ethernet cable to device's Ethernet port.

Your target computer's display output should display in the browser. TinyPilot forwards any keystrokes you enter to the target machine.
TinyPilot's default credentials are:
For security, you should connect to TinyPilot through SSH and run passwd to update your password.
