    Creating USB network

    jwidauer

      Hi everybody,

       

      I am looking into controling the parrot bebop quadrocopter with an edison.

      For this to work I need to have a ethernet over usb network, since the only possibility to connect to the quad is using a specific IP adress.

      When I plug the quad into my linux laptop it automatically creates this network and I can ping and connect to the quad (just as if I connected the edison to the laptop).

      If I use a USB OTG cable, connect this to the edison and connect the OTG cable to the bebop, using a standard usb to micro usb cable, it unfortunately doesn't create the network for me.

      The edison recognises the quad, which I confirmed with "lsusb".

       

      How would I manually set up such a network? Is there a way to make the edison connect and create the network automatically?

       

      Best,

      Jakob
