I've not done it yet, because I do not have an HDMI monitor close to the TI at the moment, but I've been wondering, "What would I see on that screen", if I plugged a monitor into the TIPI's Pi?

A DOS like screen asking for login credentials which you should change. defaults are Pi/Raspberry
I believe.

You can change the password from the TI TELNET client...

if you login as 'tipi'
type passwd
and you'll be prompted to change the 'tipi' user password.

Then run:

sudo su pi
passwd

default password is 'raspberry'
change it to what you want.

Great and to reiterate what I sent you in email.

 

The TIPI is powered off the 44pin connector. 

The 44pin connector is directly connected to the external power connector on the 32k for 5v you need to provide power there to power TIPI.

Apple II Raspberry Pi nerd here: You totally should change the passwords for this like for any system.  Raspberry Pis connected to networks and the Internet are often left with the default passwords.  People discovered this and started developing hacking tools to detect and infect these little machines and do all kinds of not nice things.

 

Even us retro nerds need to be aware of the potential for abuse with this stuff.  In fact, we need to be more careful because a lot of these old systems we use have known, unpatched vulnerabilities that can't be fixed today.
