I’ve tried on Linix and Windows going over the USB with PUTTY. THe BBB disconnects right off. Is there a setup step I’ve missed? I’ve looked at 3 tutorials on this and all just say to SSH to 192.168.7.2 port 22 but none give any direction if that does not work. I’ve Googled this and found not too much as well.
The board shows up as a storage device on both machines on Crome browser. I can see the files on the flash as well.
Thanks in advance for any help. My cables will be in soon for HDMI to DVI but I wanted to get started.
I don't quite know why you're trying 192.168.7.2, the IP address of
the BBB when it has booted will depend on the DHCP server you're
running on your LAN (probably the DHCP server in your router if you
have one). I'm not sure what happens if there's *no* DHCP server,
others may help there.
The easiest way to find the IP address of your BBB is probably to look
in you router's web configuration where you will almost certainly find
the IP addresses it has assigned and you should see the BBB there.
Alternatively you can run (as root) on your Linux system a little
program called arp-scan, give the command 'arp-scan -l' and it will
list all the systems on your LAN with the IP addresses. You'll have
to install arp-scan, it's not on most systems by default.
Finally you *might* get away with 'ssh beaglebone', it depends on how
your LAN is set up and whether the BBB's name has got registered with
the DHCP server. (This assumes you're using Angstrom, if you're using
Ubuntu it's 'ssh arm', others might be different again).
Just a question. Have you ever read this website? See step 3. Thanks for your attempt at help. I would do all that if it were on a Ethernet connection. This is the Mini USB
Hi, there was a problem with a corrupt key file on the Angstrom image that prevented SSH from working.
Not sure if that's still the case with new boards, but if you search this group for 'unable to ssh' (or similar) there is a cloud9 script to fix it from the web interface.
Alternatively, you could flash a recent Debian image if you've got a microSD card?
I do have one and I will do that. Thanks!

Oops yes, I missed that USB at the start.
