Seeed BeagleBone Green getting started documentation out of date or plain wrong

I’ve just received the BeagleBone Green and Grove IoT Starter Kit Powered by AWS. The leaflet in the box of the BeagleBone Green lists a 3 step procedure to getting started, this is appears to be very out of date or completely wrong. After a quite a bit of frustration and Googling I managed to get connected. The issues with steps on the leaflet are: 1. Step 1 Ok. 2. Step 2 Leaflet says to install drivers Problem 1: For OSX the recommended HoRNDIS drivers don’t work for OSX El Capitan per http://joshuawise.com/horndis. Problem 2: For Windows 10 installation there is no guidance to say that driver signing checking needs to be disabled so that http://beagleboard.org/static/Drivers/Windows/BONE_D64.exe will install 3. Step 3 Leaflet says to browse to your Green Problem 1: Accessing http://192.168.7.2 fails with Firefox reporting “Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 192.168.7.2” as there is nothing listening to 192.168.7.2:80 Problem 2: Connecting to 192.168.7.2:8080 brings up an Apache httpd empty directory listing. 4. Finally connecting to http://192.168.7.2:3000 brings up the Cloud9 IDE, so that you can start doing something useful. In case anybody is interested below is a netstat listing of listening processes confirming the preceding: root@beaglebone:/var/lib/cloud9# netstat -a -n Active Internet connections (servers and established) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3389 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:3350 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp6 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN tcp6 0 0 :::3000 :::* LISTEN tcp6 0 257 192.168.7.2:3000 192.168.7.1:54226 ESTABLISHED udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5353 0.0.0.0:* udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:57645 0.0.0.0:* udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:67 0.0.0.0:* udp6 0 0 :::5353 :::* udp6 0 0 :::43371 :::*

Hi Shane,

Perhaps you should mail seeed, or post this information on their forums ?

Also, for your issues #1, and #2, these issues have been known of for a while now, and have been posted about on these groups. Quite honestly, these types of problem should be expected when upgrading to a new version of .

I've just received the BeagleBone Green and Grove IoT Starter Kit Powered by
AWS. The leaflet in the box of the BeagleBone Green lists a 3 step procedure
to getting started, this is appears to be very out of date or completely
wrong. After a quite a bit of frustration and Googling I managed to get
connected. The issues with steps on the leaflet are: 1. Step 1 Ok. 2. Step 2
Leaflet says to install drivers Problem 1: For OSX the recommended HoRNDIS
drivers don't work for OSX El Capitan per HoRNDIS: USB tethering driver for Mac OS X | Joshua Wise's domain.

Did you read the thread :

Heads up: HoRNDIS does NOT yet work on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)! If
you rely on HoRNDIS for your internet connectivity, you should not
upgrade to Mac OS X 10.11. Hopefully when time permits I will fix the
driver. Some users arecurrently working on support, but the driver is
not yet stable. I apologize for the inconvenience.1)

Problem 2: For Windows 10 installation there is no guidance to say that
driver signing checking needs to be disabled so that
http://beagleboard.org/static/Drivers/Windows/BONE_D64.exe will install 3.

It's being worked on... Jason's got the new signing key from GoDaddy,
we should have an updated driver shortly..

Step 3 Leaflet says to browse to your Green Problem 1: Accessing
http://192.168.7.2 fails with Firefox reporting "Firefox can't establish a
connection to the server at 192.168.7.2" as there is nothing listening to
192.168.7.2:80 Problem 2: Connecting to 192.168.7.2:8080 brings up an Apache
httpd empty directory listing.

Can you please re-try with:
