    Connect to Galileo with SD card over Ethernet


      Hello all,


      I think I'm running around in circles because I can't seem to communicate with the board over Ethernet using PuTTy. I've downloaded the compiled SD card image and have it ready. However I can't seem to set an IP address in order to connect to the board. I've tried using a serial cable but it just doesn't seem to work, think I've got a problem with my cable.


      I've been able to set it up without the SD card using the Arduino code:

      void setup() {

        system("telnetd -l /bin/sh");

        system("ifconfig eth0 netmask up");

        system("ifconfig eth0 > /dev/ttyGS0");



      void loop() {


      However I want to use the larger image in order to use Python. I need to be able to set the IP address somewhere in the boot of the board and have tried using:

      ifconfig --address= --mask=

      As well as:

      telnetd -l /bin/sh

      ifconfig eth0 netmask up

      ifconfig eth0 > /dev/ttyGS0

      I've tried putting them in the grub.conf file but this may also be wrong.


      Any advice?
