Voyager 2 Quick Start Instructions

Step 1: Attach power cable

  1. Connect the AC to USB-C power adaptor to a power outlet.
  2. Connect the USB-C cable from the power adaptor to the USB-C port labeled "POWER" on the TinyPilot Voyager 2 device.

If everything is connected correctly, you should see Voyager 2's power LED shine a solid red. The disk activity LED will flash green intermittently as the device runs.

Step 2: Attach USB data cable

Next, use the USB-C to USB-A cable to connect the Voyager 2 to your target computer.

  1. Connect the USB-C end (rounded) of the cable to the USB-C port labeled "DATA" on the TinyPilot Voyager 2 device.
  2. Connect the USB-A end (rectangular) of the cable to a USB port on your target computer.

Step 3: Connect VGA to HDMI adaptor (Optional)

This step only applies if you purchased a VGA adaptor for a target system with no HDMI output.
  1. Connect the VGA adaptor to your computer's VGA display output.

  1. Use the 30-inch black USB-A to microUSB cable to connect the VGA adaptor to any available USB port on your computer.

Step 4: Connect the HDMI cable

  1. Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI input port on the Voyager 2.

  1. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the output display port of the target computer.

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.

Step 5: Attach Ethernet cable

Connect to your local network by connecting an Ethernet cable to the Voyager 2's Ethernet port and connect the other end to your network router or switch.

Step 6: Access the TinyPilot web interface

Your first boot will take up to five minutes. You may see the web interface restart as TinyPilot generates new, unique TLS keys for your device.

With your TinyPilot booted, you can now access the TinyPilot web interface from any device on your local network by visiting one of the following URLs:

The first time you visit the TinyPilot web interface, you'll see a privacy error because TinyPilot establishes a secure connection, but your system doesn't recognize the server yet.

You can safely ignore this warning and proceed to TinyPilot.

After you resolve the privacy error, you will be able to access the TinyPilot web interface. To fix the privacy error permanently, see Fix Privacy Error instructions.

Your target computer's display output should display in the browser. TinyPilot forwards any keystrokes you enter to the target machine.

Step 7: Change SSH credentials

TinyPilot's default credentials are:

  • Username: pilot
  • Password: flyingsopi

For security, you should connect to TinyPilot through SSH and run passwd to update your password.
