We can connect the RPi and Odroid boards in two ways to a PC. One is through a router in which both devices are on same network, or we can directly connect to a PC without a router. The connection through a router is simple and straightforward. Each device will get an IP address, and we can communicate with each device using it. But using direct communication, there is no IP assigned; we can do it using a Wi-Fi hotspot or wired LAN hotspot from a PC.
The following is the procedure to create a wired hotspot on Ubuntu for interfacing these boards:
- Click on Edit Connection... from the network option in Ubuntu, as shown in the following figure. Click Add button to create a new connection.
