    I am struggling to figure this out. As a starter, I'd like to just get a variable from the Pi on my network. It can be any variable...time, date, rlogic (a variable that my door program updates on door movement). Just anything that confirms that I have something going both ways.

    I am getting a variety of errors and I just can't find any "simple" task to confirm communication is happening. Is the message getting there? Is the message response not coming back?

    Does anyone have a simple task I can do just to establish communication? For the task configuration, am I using the local IP? Or is it the IPv4? Username...the one on the Pi? And it's password that I changed upon setup?

    Yes, you should use your local IPv4 and use your username and password.
    A simple command to try is
    Code (Text):
    ls
    for example.

    Do I need to be on the same network as the pi?

    I am getting nowhere with this. The help screen is vague. The error is jibberish. I get a different failure no matter what I try. I have no idea what the private key file should look like or even what its name/extension should be. How do I know if is in the Open SSH format? When I try to use password instead of key, I get errors there too.
