Fortunately you have all you need to get running: your Bone and a USB cable. Plug the USB cable into your host computer (Mac, Windows, or Linux) and plug the mini-USB connector side into the USB connector near the Ethernet connector on the Bone. In 10 or 15 seconds you’ll see a new drive appear on your host computer.

The Beagle appears as a USB drive

Open the drive and open START.htm with Google Chrome or FireFox.

Open START.htm

Follow the instructions for installing the USB Drivers for your host computer’s OS.

Install the USB drivers

Then point the browser on your host to

Open on your host computer

You are now ready to explore your Bone. Look around. There’s lots of information on the page. The green banner at the top means the browser is talking to the Bone and code on the page can be editted and run on the Bone. Try it!

Also be sure to point your browser to


Here you’ll find Cloud9, a web-based integrated development environment (IDE) that lets you edit and run code on your Bone!

You can also ssh to the bone from the host. Just enter:

host$ ssh -X

Look around and see what's there. Remember the ssh command. We'll use it often.
