Hello Intel community! I ask for some assistance as I try to SSH into my edison. I own the mini break-out board and have ubilinux flashed onto it.
Currently I have no problem connecting to the Intel Edison via serial port using PuTTY.
I have been able to configure /etc/network/interfaces such that it looks like the following:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
# For WPA
wpa-ap-scan 1 # I have noticed that the edison can still connect to my university's wifi without having the lines with comments on the side.
wpa-proto RSN # Removing these lines had no effect on my attempt to SSH into the edison.
wpa-pairwise CCMP #
wpa-group CCMP #
post-up iwconfig wlan0 power off #
Here's what returns when I run ifconfig:
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1

TX packets:889 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:7627267 (7.2 MiB) TX bytes:92475 (90.3 KiB)
When I try to ping the edison's IP address, I get the following message: "Request timed out."
When I try to ping my computer from the edison, I get the following instead: "Destination Host Unreachable."
One of my peers has seen success both pinging and SSH-ing into the edison with his computer (we are all on the same network). I am able to SSH into my edison without fail when I am at home with both devices connected to my personal router. This error only occurs when I am attempting to SSH while connected to my university's wifi (note the IP address).
Something tells me it may have to do with Firewall settings that is preventing a response from the edison.
I would greatly appreciate any assistance from the Intel community! Thanks in advance. Please let me know if you need any more information.
