Ethernet connection with an embedded linux board

Fri Jun 27, 2008 9:36 am

Hi , I've bought an embedded linux board powered by an AT91SAM9260 ARM processor which has an ethernet port.
I 'd like to download files over ethernet using TFTP protocol from a host PC (equipped with ubuntu 8.04 ) to the embedded board but I don't know how to do it.
I own an ethernet cross cable and when I plug it both to the PC and the board on the bar I see a notification that says "wired network connection".
The home page of the board manufacturer is :

and the user manual of the board is:

I don't know how to discover the IP address of my laptop to issue commands like wget to download in the embedded board the files compiled in the laptop pc with a C cross compiler .
Please , can somebody give me some advice?
Thank you very much in advance.

Open terminal in your Ubuntu (xterm for example) and issue "/sbin/ifconfig" command. Find in an output your ethernet adapter named eth0 or eth1 (if you have 2 ethernet ports). There will be IP address for your Ethernet adapter.

Hope it helps :)
