Chapter 9. Using the Network

In this chapter, you will learn about using the BeagleBone's network connection to stream data to web services and control hardware remotely through web interfaces. We will cover the following topics:

  • TCP/IP and TCP servers for remote hardware access
  • HTTP servers for remote hardware access
  • Streaming data to remote storage and visualization services

TCP/IP

The BeagleBone has an Ethernet, or IEEE 802.3, connection. This provides a physical layer over which TCP/IP is implemented.
