6.1.2. Connect to an EVM via 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 192.168.1.10
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 188.8.131.52
Type root for the password and leave the password blank (just hit Enter)
