Hi -- new to this forum
I have Stretch on a 3B.
My use case involves using SSH on wifi when no router is available. I need to connect from my iPad to the Pi with SSH while on top of a mountain. I am aware of a fallback option for eth0. Since I don't think the iPad can connect to eth0(?), this approach does not help. So I am wondering if a wlan0 fallback can also be implemented? While at home I use the wifi connection through my router to perform maintenance.
My networking experience is limited -- but I've read somewhere that eth0 will default to a "local link" after 30 seconds (?). Is there a default wifi IP that I could use?
