    Establishing a fixed IP on Edison with Ethernet connection via USB dongle

    eco_bach

      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

      I get

      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...
