For example you can reach the web page on a Arietta G25 board simply using this URL:
or open an SSH session with it by typing:
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Download and install Bonjour on your Windows PC following this link:
Install libnss-mdns package then try a ping to the board typing:
~$ ping myboard.local PING myboard.local (192.168.1.7) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from myboard.station (192.168.1.7): icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.785 ms 64 bytes from myboard.station (192.168.1.7): icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.402 ms
Or scan your LAN by typing:
The Acme Systems Debian microSD is ready to works with Bonjour by default.
On other boards you need to install libnss-mdns package by typing:
~# apt-get update ~# apt-get install libnss-mdns
This example shows how to set the name "myboard" and reach it on LAN using the address "http://myboard.local".
~# echo "myboard" > /etc/hostname ~# reboot
