ssh to the beaglebone(boots ubuntu from sd card) through the ethernet help needed


I want to ssh to my beaglebone thats running ubuntu form an sd card.

How do i proceed?

Do i need to set up a DHCP server on my debian machine for the beaglebone to somehow get it correct ip address or something?

Please if you know let me know hehe. cause i’m a little helpless. all the tutorials show how to make a serial connection thought the usb to an

angstrom os thats already on the hard-drive.

Thanks in advance.
