Device discovery on local area network

What are people using for to get the IP address of their Joule? i.e. to find your Joule on the local network. I want to use http://zeromq.org/ ZeroMQ and use my laptop to connect to the Joule.

I have been using SSDP (https://github.com/diversario/node-ssdp node-ssdp) and only wifi but it does not seem too reliable. I am thinking of switching to Bluetooth to get the wifi address or something.

I'm using the latest Ref-os-iot

Hello waho,

Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Joule™ 570x Developer Kit.

In order to get the IP address of the Joule, I open a PuTTY terminal and run the following command:

ifconfig

The output is as follows (the white rectangle marks the location of the Joule's IP address):

 

 

I hope you find the previous information useful.

If you have any other question or update, don't hesitate to contact us.

Have a nice day.

Regards,

Hey thanks for the reply!

That is through a wired device. Looking for reliable wireless solution to get that ip address of the embedded device.

Hello waho,

The methods used to communicate to the board wirelessly, SSH/WiFi and Bluetooth, need the IP address and the Device BT MAC, respectively. That means that at first, you'll need a wired serial communication for configuration, as well as to obtain the device's information.

In order to configure the Bluetooth communication of the device, please follow this link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/721510 https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/721510.

 

 

The steps for creating a Bluetooth serial console can be found here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/721513 https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/721513.

Have a nice day.

Regards,
