2 – Kali Pi after install what next

Now that we have Kali working on the Pi it is time to make some changes to the system and run updates.

I am going to carry out this work via SSH.

Step 1:

Run ssh username@kali_ip_address

1 - ssh to kali pi

1 – ssh to kali pi

Step 2:

Change the password by typing “passwd” and pressing enter, don’t worry when you don’t see anything appearing in the password field as this is normal and all you have to do is enter the new password correct twice

2 - kali change password

2 – kali change password

Step 3:

Update first with apt-get update

3 - kali apt-get update

3 – kali apt-get update

This should end without error like below

3.1 - kali apt-get update finish

3.1 – kali apt-get update finish

Step 4:

Once “apt-get update” has completed successfully you will want to run “apt-get upgrade”, you can run “apt-get upgrade -y” if you want to continue with any upgrades found

4 - kali apt-get upgrade

4 – kali apt-get upgrade

This should also end without error

4.1 - kali apt-get upgrade finish

4.1 – kali apt-get upgrade finish

A way to do this quickly can be seen below by linking the commands together

4.2 - kali quick update and upgrade

4.2 – kali quick update and upgrade

Step 5:

My last step is to reboot even though you don’t technically need to I like to do this myself after any updates or upgrades and it is quick

5 - Reboot kali

5 – Reboot kali
