First interaction with the BeagleBoard

You have now successfully completed the BeagleBoard setup and will see the LEDs at the BeagleBoard flash. One optional final test you can perform is to connect to your BeagleBoard from your Windows host PC via Ethernet and/or the serial-USB connection.

Installing PuTTY on a Windows PC

We will use a terminal to connect to the BeagleBoard. For Windows systems, the most popular terminal program is PuTTY, which provides a terminal-style window to connect to Linux systems. The PuTTY installer (a single executable file) can be downloaded from tartarus.org/~simon/putty-snapshots/x86/putty-installer.exe and more information about PuTTY can be found at www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html.
