MEAM.Design - BeagleBoard Xm - Getting Started in OS X

Remote Login

The first thing you need to do is simply connect to the BBXm. This is accomplished by running 'ssh remoteusername@hostname' on your local machine. The hostname that you supply as an argument is the hostname of the remote machine that you want to connect to. Such as in this example:

ssh ubuntu@ipaddress

The first time around it will ask you if you wish to add the remote host to a list of known_hosts, go ahead and say "yes" and enter the password.

If you are on the local "slalom" network, you can just type the following to login to the robot

ssh ubuntu@robot_name.local

Password: ubuntu

Enable VNC on the robot

To enable VNC on the robot, ssh into the BBXm and run the following command in the terminal prompt.

x11vnc -display :0 &
