    Cannot connect to terminal with putty

      Hi there,

       

      I'm having trouble connecting the linux terminal using the RS232 cable. I basically don't know how to do it

       

      So I downloaded putty

       

      Next find my galileo's IP address. So I connected to my Wifi and then used the system("ifconfig &> /dev/ttyGS0"); command to get it. It is 192.168.0.100

      Then I opened putty, inserted my IP and changed the baud to 115200.

      But it will not connect for some reason. I get a "network error: connection timed out" error.  What should I see on the screen? Do I need to power on/off the board?

       

      Thanks

      Tom
