Summary

Here you will find a list of applications, and their usages.

Prerequisites

Networking Setup

For Didj only Networking Enabled

Hardware Needed

Console Access

General Applications

Set up telnetd

Run Telnetd

as a background daemon

# telnetd 

or in the foreground

# telnetd -F

At this point you should be able to telnet from the host to the device.

On Host

$ telnet 10.0.0.2

This should leave you with a remote command line to your device.


Netcat

Note the IP address that you assigned to the Didj, for example 10.0.0.2. To copy a file, for example "./myfile" from your PC to the Didj:

On Didj

 # nc -p 5600 -l -w 30 > myfile

On Host

 $ nc 10.0.0.2 5600 -w 2 < myfile

When nc exits, you should see the file on the device.

Explorers Specific Applications

SSH

The LeapPad Explorer and Leapster Explorer both have sshd installed. With a little configuring, it is an easy way to transfer files back and forth.

First you'll need to access your device via a console, so you can edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. There are two settings you'll want to change.

On Device

PermitRootLogin yes

PermitEmptyPasswords yes


Once you've saved the config file, you'll need to run.

 $ /etc/init.d/sshd start

This will take a while as it generates the proper keys. If you have already configured your networking you can then run.

On Host

$ ssh root@10.0.0.1

This should give you a remote command line over ssh to your device. You can also use any number of programs that support the ssh protocol for a graphic interface.

Enable Permanently

To enable SSH and SFTP permanently, you will have to modify the /etc/init.d/rcS file.

On Device

Add the following line in the same location as the telnetd and vsftpd startup (~line 138), or optionally outside the check for /flags/developer (~line 136):

/etc/init.d/sshd start; ### tim done "sshd"

This will run sshd during the start up process, making it available with out the need for console access.
