I have an embedded linux device with an ARM processor. I am connecting to it over a USB port using minicom. What should I do to "ssh" into the device through the USB connection?

I want to setup something like the following setup for beagle bone:


Edit: My device is not a beagle bone. The above link is provided as an example of what I am trying to achieve.

  • That looks like a cool project! Have you determined what the IP address is for it? – ryekayo Aug 20 '14 at 19:37
  • the device has no ethernet ports only the USB port through which I can connect through USB. At the moment, it only has the "lo" interface. I think usb ethernet would be the first thing to setup... not sure. – Nithin Aug 20 '14 at 19:46
  • Well I would assume you need to check with the manufacturer and see if the embedded device comes with a wifi adaptor or some kind of means of connecting to the internet. As of right now, the only thing I can think of is mounting the device and simply navigating to the directories when mounted but this is not SSH.. – ryekayo Aug 20 '14 at 19:47

    Did you read the tutorial you linked to? A. The BeagleBoard OS is already configured and B. you need to install drivers on your remote system. Installing Drivers (Linux). You'll have to find out what's done in their OS to support this – Creek Aug 20 '14 at 20:08
