Connect to the Target

Start your Beagle Bone Blue

  • Connect the micro USB with the PC.
  • It takes about 15 seconds until the Beagle Bone Blue is powered up and another 15 seconds until a network adapter is shown on your host pc. Open a Terminal and check if this network is already available.
    $ ifconfig 

    If you work on the host in a virtual machine, you might need to select the device among your various USB devices.

  • Connect via ssh to your Beagle Bone Blue
    $ ssh ost@

    Default credentials are “ost:ost”

On newer host systems, e.g. Ubuntu 22, ssh deprecated using SHA-1 and you cannot connect as shown above. In such cases you can use

$ ssh -o HostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-rsa -o PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes=+ssh-rsa ost@

First Login

The first time you do this you will get a security alert in the console - type “yes” and hit enter. Then enter the password and confirm with enter. Don't be alarmed if the console does not response while you type your password.

Next: Test the Hardware
