I'm a novice user when it comes to Linux networking so I appreciate your patience.
I need to establish a reliable ethernet connection to my edison from a PC on the same network.
I've attached the usb ethernet dongle to the ethernet network after powering on my edison (with arduino breakout)
I then ssh in from another computer on the same network ssh root@<configname>.local
I then run ifconfig to get the IP of the edison
192.168.4.144 for the inet addr
One thing I noticed is that if I have both wifi enabled and an active ethernet connection ssh defaults to the ethernet connection.
To test the IP I simply ping from another command line window.
All fine so far.
I think all that I need is to make this IP fixed somehow.
How can I accomplish this?
I found these instructions for the galileo, are these applicable to the edison as well? I don't have a network folder in my etc directory...
I saw your post Using connman to set up a static IP, were you able to do it or are you still trying to configure static IP on any method? If this is the case maybe you should continue in only one thread instead of two on the same issue. I’ll try to set this on connman and let you know my results on your other post.
