Having installed SSH and VNC on your Pi you can now install your clients of choice on OSX .

I prefer Cyberduck  for GUI access to folders and files on the Raspberry Pi , Mac’s own Terminal app is perfect for straight command line ‘SSH tunnelling’

Using the IP address from your Pi type in the following command
in Terminal (example:

ssh pi@

you will be asked for a password which, unless you’ve changed it, is raspberry

You are now ready to install  software , code or modify files and directories via command line on your Raspberry Pi.


The stock VNC interface in OSX is called ScreenSharing and is accessible from the Finder Menu;  Keyboard Short Cut :   ⌘ K

I have also used Chicken of VNC (Mac/Win)and Real VNC (Win/Mac/Lin) they both work perfectly well for this – short clip here.
