I want my raspberry device to make its own hotspot when it boots up (Internet not needed), and then ssh to it.
So the two questions I'm actually asking is...
How do I create a hotspot in Linux?
Once connected, how do I successfully SSH to it?
After some digging around, I found hotspotd that can make a hotspot and is pretty easy to configure. After creating the hotspot, I wasn't able to SSH.
I don't mind using an alternate program to make a hotspot, if it works better than this one.
My pi is running Debian.
This question has a slight similarity to my question, but I'd like more technical details and the answer remarks
ssh to the correct IP. In my case, I'd like to assign the pi to a static ip, so please add on how to do that.
