Re: Odyssey-2 on Linux

Sid Boyce

e.g in Ubuntu ... You can try configuring a static IP address to the Ethernet port using the GUI, something I have not tried.

Connect the cat6 cable.

"ifconfig -a" should show the interface name, e.g eth0 and if you want it on e.g 192.168.10 subnet

sudo ip addr add dev eth0

sudo ip link set dev eth0 up

Then I ran ./HPSDRProgrammer_web and wrote the IP address in the browser.

This is what I did for my ODY-2 fromĀ  a laptop where the Ethernet port was not connected or configured.

73 ... Sid.

Try setting the Ethernet speed of your PC NIC to 100MBit (fixed). That helped me using Windows as OS.

I run mine on a gigabit switch. You can assign a static IP address
I tried it but it also doesn't talk to the Odyssey. I changed the Ethernet
cable too, to a Cat 6 to be sure but it makes no difference.

Unfortunately I have no experience with Ethernet and networking so I am
finding it difficult to troubleshoot. Here is what I have found out so far:

The firmware in my Odyssey is the original AOP 1.10.

If I disable dhcp, ifconfig only reports the lo local interface. Don't know if
this means that Ody doesn't have a static IP address?

If I run dhcpcd, ifconfig reports Ody's Ethernet connection with an IP address
of so presumably there is some communication with Ody?

I am not sure, is the Odyssey-2 in its original "factory" condition as sold, ready
to work or should I be loading FPGA firmware each time I want to use it?

Pardon my ignorance! and thanks in advance.
