Under Linux & MacOS

Make sure that your laptop/phone/tablet/... has 5 GHz support. You should look for 802.11 ac support.

Connect to WiFi network, Erle-Brain creates a network called "erle-< product > ". The password for the network is "holaerle". Afterwards, SSH into the board:

#Under Debian
ssh root@10.0.0.2
#Under Snappy Ubuntu Core
#password: ubuntu
ssh ubuntu@11.0.0.2

Through mini USB


Erle-Brain supports client mode USB. Using this connection mechanism and the Ethernet-over-USB kernel module you should be able to SSH into the board.

First check which interfaces you have in your computer, execute ifconfig.

Connect Erle-Brain using the mini USB connector:



Find the new network interface that should've been created in your OS, executing again ifconfig.

Assign the following IP address: 192.168.7.1. Assuming that your new interface is eth6:

sudo ifconfig eth6 192.168.7.1

Now that you are in the same subnet, just ssh into the board:

#Under Debian
ssh root@192.168.7.2
#Under Snappy Ubuntu Core
#password: ubuntu
ssh ubuntu@192.168.7.2
