CCRMA Satellite How To Connect
How To Connect
On this page, we explain how to connect to your Beagleboard over the Ethernet cable.
Mac OS X
Go to System Preferences, select Network, and choose the Ethernet module. Write down your current settings in case you think that you might need them in the future. (For example, if you use Ethernet to connect to the Internet in your dormitory, you probably want to save these settings for when you go home.) Now change your Ethernet settings to the following:
IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
The remaining items such as Router, DNS Server, and Search Domains can be left blank for now, and click the Apply button in the bottom right to apply the settings.
If your laptop is currently connected to the Internet using some method other than Ethernet: It can be convenient to enable the Beagleboard to get onto the Internet. Go back to System Preferences and choose Sharing. Edit the settings so that your Internet connection is shared with the Ethernet port. In order to do this, you may have to disable Internet Sharing temporarily. Finally, click the Internet Sharing checkbox to enable this option.
You will use the X11 program to login to CCRMA@Satellite over the Ethernet connection. Check if this program is already installed. In most recent version of OS X, X11 is installed by default in either the Applications folder or the Utilities folder, but in older versions it was necessary to install it from the Developer Tools CD. No matter what, if you cannot find the X11 program on your Mac, come talk to us, and we will try to help you.
