Ethernet Over USB With Ubuntu On Both BBB And Host PC

Have a BBB and laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The BBB is using the ARMHF build of Ubuntu (built 17 Nov 2013). Trying to access the BBB via Ethernet over USB, but can’t find any article/blog post on getting Ethernet over USB working with Ubuntu. Noticed that the following related drivers are loaded on the laptop when the BBB is connected:

  • cdc_acm

  • cdc_ether

  • usbnet

What is required to get Ethernet over USB working for the BBB? There was a mention on bringing up the USB0 interface but that was for the Angstrom distribution. Can only access the BBB through Ethernet at the moment via SSH.
