ping raspberrypi.local

And the result will show the Raspberry Pi’s IP Address:

PING raspberrypi.local ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=215.998 ms

In this case, my Raspberry Pi’s IP address is Now I can SSH into your Pi:

ssh pi@

Replace with your IP address and you’ll be set to play.

Better question, do you even need your Pi’s IP address?

To save yourself from looking up this guide again, you can just combine this with the ssh command to find and automatically ssh into your Pi:

ssh pi@raspberrypi.local

Amazing! I wish I knew this years ago. I could’ve saved minutes of my life. Possibly an hour. Learn from my mistakes, do this instead.
