5.1.1. Connect to an EVM via Telnet

Using Telnet

The initialization file (/etc/init.d/rcS) starts a telnet server. If your development host is in the same sub-net as the EVM, you can telnet to it using the IP address assigned in the U-boot environment.  The following is an example from a Linux host.

$ telnet

You will be prompted for a user name and password. The user name should be root and the password should be left blank (just hit Enter).

From a Windows XP host, click the Start button, then click Run… Type telnet and click OK. This will open a telnet window.

Type “o < ip-addr >” and hit enter.  Example:

Microsoft Telnet> o

Type root for the password and leave the password blank (just hit Enter)
