    Galileo 2 Terminal access


      I am trying to login into the Galileo 2 via ethernet with the steps described here: Linux Tutorial For Intel® Galileo Gen 2



      But I get in the Arduino serial console this output:




      lo        Link encap:Local Loopback 

                inet addr:  Mask:

                UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:65536  Metric:1

                RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

                TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          Hmm.. extending the sketch with:


            system("ifconfig eth0 netmask up");


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


            system("telnetd -l /bin/sh"); //Start the telnet server on Galileo





          pmu:~ pmu$ ssh

          ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused

            Hi Poseid,


            this thread should solve your problem: Help to setup an Ethernet connection


            If you don't have dhcp server you can configure network like this:


            connect <service name>

            config <service name>  ipv4 manual <gateway>

              One of the troubles (and things that make me really curious) is how to do the first login with the Galileo boards. The Edison was working great with USB-to-ETH0 connection, but trying the same with Galileo somehow feels more difficult.


              The only thing I find is doing a sketch from the Arduino IDE and then use an USB connection with serial communication.


              Now, I have Galileo 1 and 2. The Galileo 1 does not answer at all anymore (only a strange bytesequence), and the Galileo 2 does not show much information either.


              Well... would be great to get more ideas!

                Hi Poseid,

                I thought you have serial cable to connect with with Galileo. That is the easiest way in I recommend to use it for first connection. I dont know why didn't Intel put FTDI chip already on board, it would help many users including me. Before I got myself one cable I used: Poor man's telnet for Galileo

                It works and set up first ETH connection on Galileo with it. I hope it helps.

                  Thanks! That looks very helpful. I'll check that strategy.
