What image are you using; I’m using the latest Yocto image from Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone . Try flashing to the latest image. Also, what is the IP address of your computer, make sure your Edison and computer are on the same network.
to flash the Edison with the latest image do the following
- download this http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-image-ww25.5-15.zip its the latest edison image
- unpack its contents to a folder on your pc
- download this http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24909/eng/IntelEdisonDriverSetup1.2.1.exe this is stand alone driver package for the edison, you may have already installed this if you installed the XDK if not, install it
- Download the flash tool Intel® Phone Flash Tool Lite | 01.org and install it
- once you have installed it open it and see the setup guide https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/flash-tool-lite-user-manual
- follow the guide to the letter. You will need to have a stand alone power source for your edison and a usb cable connected to the non terminal port(if you have the mini break out board its the bottom right port)
Regarding the IP address, if you are connecting to your wifi access point it should give our a unique IP address to the edison. Run 'configure_edison --wifi' after you update the flash.
There was a simular question a couple of weeks ago which I did put a solution out which did work for me.
I believe by default mdnsresponder binds to the USB connection (which will probably be a separate network to the wifi network).
What I did was to install from Alex's repository avahi which binds to all interfaces. See Re: Edison.local not working
For some reason, the latest immage from the intel website did not fix the problem. However, what did fix the problem, is the image which I recieved on teh intel edison roadshow usb stick. So I successfully managed to solve this problem (yes, I did have to flash it, you were right )
Thanks for your help guys!
