Version added 16-Oct-2017| Modified 03-Jan-2019
This guide describes how to set up the networking between the host machine and the target device.
Target Device Configuration
You need to configure the network information of the target device to enable communication between the host machine and the target device.
Follow the steps below to configure the network information on the target device. Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected beforehand.
On the Home Launcher, click on the icon of Settings app. Settings app UI will show up on the left side of the screen.
Click on the Network icon, and you will see the initial status of network setting.
Click on the Wired Connection (Ethernet) menu. The default network information will be displayed.
Click on the Edit button, and the EDIT menu will show up.
- To turn on the manual editing mode, uncheck Set Automatically.
- In each field, enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server information in dot-decimal notation. After you finish entering the information, click on the CONNECT button.
- If the status shows up as "Connected to Internet", it means the connection has been set up successfully.
- Otherwise, retry after checking the address information and the physical connection.
Communicating between the Host and Target
After the network connection has been set up, you can connect or send files to the target device using Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.
Here are several methods that you can use for host-target communication:
To connect to the target device, use the ssh command on Linux or macOS shell. On Windows, you can use a SSH client (for example, Putty).
To send files to the target device, use the scp (secure copy) command on Linux or macOS shell. On Windows, you can use a SSH client that supports secure file transfer (for example, WinSCP).
