Hi,

I just want to confirm the following.

  • You are running this against a Linux host machine?
  • You are connected to the device through the USB port and not the Ethernet?
  • When you plug the unit into your host Lonux machine you see the usb1 Ethernet interface with IP address 192.168.2.3 assigned to it (ifconfig)?

Regards

Hi,

If you connect to the Ethernet port it is nt going to work.

To get it to work nativley on Windows (and not through a Linux emulation) you should just need to install the WP drivers (link below), plug the USB in and let the unit enumerate. Assuming the IP settings on your Windows laptop are co operative then you should be able to use something like teraterm to perform an SSH session with the FX30.

Hi Manoj,
Let’s get your FX30 working on Windows first, then linux since your running virtual linux.

For the Ethernet port, the ip address is hard coded as 192.168.13.31 and there is no dhcp server. On your Windows side, configure your network adapter with a static ip, something like 192.168.13.32.

For usb, You’ll need to install the drivers from the Source. Once you’ve done this, in the device manager if connect the USB cable you should see a Sierra Wireless ECM device. If you do, wait until your network adapter gets an ip address; for USB there is indeed a dhcp server so you host machine should get an ip such as 192.168.2.3. Then you can ssh to the FX30 at 192.168.2.2.
