Apalis T30 RNDIS


Is there any way to configure the USB RNDIS device so that it accepts connections via SSH and also allows SMB services?

At present, the IP address assigned to RNDIS ( only allows SSH connections, SMB requests, etc, when the wired ethernet adapter ( is connected at the same time.

Thanks for any advice.

Assuming you are talking about USB RNDIS running on our Embedded Linux BSP the RNDIS part should actually all be taken care of automatically by a usb-rndis systemd service paired with systemd-networkd assigning a 192.168.11.x address to the host PC you connect your target to. The target itself should be configured to

Hi Marcel,

It seems that as long as I have wired ethernet connected (with a different IP address), the SMB and SSH work. If I disconnect the wired ethernet, I find that I’m no longer able to connect to the rndis0 interface via SSH or SMB.

I will try again this evening.

Whatever had stopped the RNDIS working has now “corrected itself” and with a simple reboot, everything now works.

Thanks Marcel and sorry for my stupid questions :slight_smile:

Kind regards,
