This Page is my personal reference to my work in ECE497. All of the command line arguments are designed to run on Ubuntu 12.04.
Connecting to the BeagleBone
In order to Connect to the BeagleBone we can use screen or ssh. Its a good idea to install screen before getting started:
host$ sudo apt-get install screen
Before plugging in the BeagleBone, run the following:
host$ ls /dev/tty* > /tmp/tty
Then, After plugging in the BeagleBone, run the following to show which USB the Bone is plugged into:
host$ ls /dev/tty* > /tmp/tty2 host$ diff /tmp/tty* 98a99, 100 > /dev/ttyUSB0 > /dev/ttyUSB1 host$ sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB1 115200
USB0 and USB1 are both listed when plugging in the Bone, but after attempting to connect to each of them (next) I found that ttyUSB1 was the Bone.
Press Return to start the Angstrom software, and login as root
Congratulations you are now connected to the BeagleBone.
Once logged in to root on the Bone, you can eject the Bone and run:
listed under usb0, is (in my case) inet addr:192.168.7.2 Bcast:192.168.7.3 Mask:255.255.255.252
Using ssh we can also connect to the Bone:
host$ ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org
