Network user accounts

The students user accounts are stored on the central PiNet server. This means they can log in on any Raspberry Pi in the classroom and no more trying to figure out which SD card belongs to which student.

Network booting

The Raspberry Pi operating system (Raspbian) is also stored on the central server, meaning each Raspberry Pi boots up off it each time. This allows you to maintain one perfect master operating system.

Shared folders & backups

Easy to setup shared folders to share resources with students and a breeze to set up automated backups for students work to an external drive.

Simple to set up

PiNet was designed from the ground up to be extremely easy to set up and maintain. It is so simple, we have even heard of 11 year old students managing their school PiNet network!

Completely Free

PiNet is completely free, open source and built upon the work of the Linux Terminal Server Project. This means you can use it for what you want, where you want for no cost and have access to the full source code.

Used across the world

PiNet is already used across the world by 100s of schools and organisations in over 30 countries including United Kingdom, China, Brazil, South Africa and the United States.
