Communicating over Statically assignend IP.

Discussion created by Jayakumar Appari on Apr 9, 2012

Hi,

 

I would like to know, how one can communicate using statical ip settings between host PC and iMX25 boad.

 

Following is the requirement:

To pick the ipaddress from a particular file and start comminucating ovet the assigned ipAddress.

 

To meat the above feature, when I restarted the network it had poped the following message:

root@fressScale~$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart

follwoing message is given:

Runing sysctl

setting up network on loopback device:

route: SIOCADDRT file exists.

 

Warning: no IPAddr is set, please set this from ltib config screen, or directly in /etc/rc.d/rc.conf.

 

I have made corresponing changes while configure ltib with dhcp off also making changes in rtc.conf.Upon boot the ipaddress changes successfuly.But, whiel bring-up the network the board it is noticed that HWare ADDREss in 00.00.0.00.00

 

If any one has any information about how to bring the network up using NAND boot imx25 please provide the info.          

 

Folwing is the o/p

root@macd ~$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/network start
Running sysctl
Setting up networking on loopback device:
route: SIOCADDRT: File exists

Warning: no IPADDR is set, please set this from the ltib
config screen, or directly in /etc/rc.d/rc.conf.
