I just got Galileo. How do I connect with the board using SSH with USB connected to it (COM port).
Take a look at this post: https://communities.intel.com/thread/46335 by chofrock. He shows the different options to connect to Intel Galileo.
You cannot connect via SSH through the USB cable. The link that Intel_JEspinoza sent has lots of good options for you. So that you understand more fully. SSH is used over TCP/IP, and so requires network connectivity.
The BeagleBone Black allows you to SSH in through the USB connection (via TCP/IP).
