Interacting with Udoo Linux
The ARM CPU on the Udoo runs a Linux operating system with familiar interfaces. There are multiple ways to directly interact with the Linux system on the Udoo:
Wired Ethernet Configuration
Using the wired ethernet is recommended for all of the ‘remote’ access methods as it will have much higher bandwidth and lower latency than routing through the campus WiFi.
The Udoo image is pre-configured to use IP address 192.168.1.2 for the Ethernet port. The following instructions assume you have manually configured your personal computer Ethernet port is 192.168.1.1, netmask 255.255.255.0, with no gateway specified and no DNS enabled. This will form a private network on the Ethernet with just two nodes, your personal computer and the Udoo.
The Udoo is pre-configured to use the campus WiFi network for general network access, and it will automatically route requests such as update checks over the WiFi when connected.
SSH remote console access
You will need a ssh client program on your personal computer to connect to the Udoo ssh server. Mac OS X systems come with one pre-installed, available from the command line as ssh.
From a command line (e.g. Terminal.app window), you can connect using the Udoo Ethernet IP address:
The Udoo default user account is named ‘ubuntu’. It will prompt for a password.
The first time you login, you may also see some prompts requesting permission to connect to a previously unseen host.
If all goes well, you’ll see a login banner and command prompt.
