How To Connect

On this page, we explain how to connect to ccrma@satellite 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:

Configure: Manually

IP Address:

Subnet Mask:

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, download it from here.

Now open up a window in X11. Your ccrma@satellite board should choose the IP address To check that it is visible type the command ping, and see how fast the network response is. Once you are satisfied, hit Control-C to quit ping. Then, to finally login to ccrma@satellite, type

"ssh -X ccrma@"

The password should be temppwd.

Windows 7


Instructions for Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix:

Run ifconfig in a terminal and look for your wired ethernet device. It will probably be called "eth0". Copy down the value next to HWaddr.

Go to "System" -> "Network Connections".

Under the "Wired" tab of the dialog that opens click "Add".

Set the "Connection name" to something logical, like CCRMA Satellite. Paste the value you copied from HWAddress in the "MAC address" box.

Click the "IPv4 Settings" tab. Change "Method" to "Manual". Next to "Addresses" click "Add". In the "Address" column type "". In the "Netmask" column type "". Click "Apply".

In the notification area on your desktop panel, click the NetworkManager Applet icon. Select the connection you just created. You now should be able to ssh into the board by typing "ssh -X ccrma@" in a terminal.
