VOXL 2 keeps the core size and weight low by minimizing component counts and taking techniques like moving modems to add-on cards. Below are some options for getting VOXL 2 on a network.

Networking Options

USB-to-Ethernet Adapters

For desktop development, this is an ideal low-latency option.

Various add-on options provide USB ports, like the M0090 or PCIe/5G Modem Carrier board/ provides access to both USB 2.0 and 3.0 hubs via a 4-pin and 10-pin JST connector respectively.

Tested adapters (some were just around the office, and not recommended beyond that endorsement).

  • Apple PN# A1277
  • Asus PN# TBD

Wi-Fi Dongles

Accessing a shell using SSH

Assuming you have an IP connection using one of the options above, you can ssh using user root and password oelinux123, for example:

ssh root@
root@'s password: oelinux123

If you are having issues SSHing into the system as root - login via adb and run the following

echo "PermitRootLogin yes"  >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
/etc/init.d/ssh restart
