i.MX6Q rev 1.6 2Gb Freescale on IXORA board
Hi, today I’m working with a couple of old boards trying to deploy a Qt app already deployed years ago. Same error for both.
I’m not so skilled and a long time since last deploy (a couple of years) …maybe I forgot something.
The app has been developed on Qt 5.13 on Windows.
I cannot establish a SSH connection.
Host name: 192.168.0.2 (already set with ifconfig eth0 on the board)
SSH port 22
Path to ssh…sftp…askpass…keygen: set and found (black font color)
Java and Android settings with a lot of errors but is it worth or not?
If I understand you correctly, you flashed your apalis imx6 module with a Boot2Qt image and now you would like to connect to it via SSH. I tried to reproduce the issue that you are facing. Here are my steps:
Installed the “Qt for Device Creation Demo” image which comes out of the box on the Toradex Easy Installer.
Get the IP address of the module from ifconfig or ip a command (or you can also see it on the GUI if you have a display connected to the module)
Connect using SSH using the following command: ssh root@<IP_ADDRESS>
This worked just fine for me. Could you please confirm if these are the exact same steps you followed?
Also please make sure that your module and the development PC are on the same network.
Hi Rudhi, thank you.
Point 1 & 2 ok.
Point 3 seems don’t work for me. I use a Putty or WinSCP client (I’m on a Windows developer computer) but with error “Network is unreachable”.
I connected directly pc and module with an ethernet cable.
In the module /etc directory I don’t have any ssh subdirectory…
Does it means it is not installed?
At point 2 I usually change the eth0 address to 192.168.0.2 with “ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.2”. (it usually work fine in my experience).
I made the same thing today without changing ip and the ssh connection works!
What in this ip modification goes wrong?
anyway I performed a device test in Qt and everything is ok but the “rsync”.
Today I tested connmanctl command. It works changing the static desired ip but after this changing I cannot ping to the device.
I used the command:
connmanctl> config ethernet_XXXXX_cable --ipv4 manual 192.168.0.2 255.255.0.0
But after this I cannot ping anymore.
Is there any other procedure to test?
only now I have found the error (I guess). My windows pc has 169.254.xyz.abc ip with 255.255.0.0 mask (just because company policy) , while on my board I was trying to set a 192.168.0.2 ip 255.255.0.0 mask.
Those ip are not in the same network, correct?
If I set the device to 169.254.xyz.cde it seems to work fine (the device will never be online).
I usually need to switch my windows pc net connection between internet and device but I don’t have any better/faster solution.
Do you have further advice?
For development, it is usual to have a local network where you are able to configure as you need. Of course you most probably need to align it with your IT, but being able to “mess around” with your own local network is veeeery helpful for development
