Orange Pi Zero Plus as an ethernet gadget

Recommended Posts

Armbian uses g_serial by default with a modern kernel. With old, I lost track. I assume you only need to exchange it with g_ether? /etc/modules

I'm actually very new to all these so can you please point out how I can exchange g_serial with g_ether?

I actually wrote the exact procedure :) Edit /etc/modules. Remove g_serial and add g_ether instead .... save and reboot.

 

But remember, it's still only a theory. I haven't tested this.

I changed g_serial to g_ether and my board is being detected as USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget on my pc but there is no connection. How do I ssh to the device? I tried with hostname.local but couldn't connect. :(

change your /etc/network/interfaces file to look like:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.100.1
    netmask 255.255.255.0

 

and type

sudo ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0

 

With that you should be able to ssh into the device using ssh USER@192.168.100.1

I changed /etc/network/interfaces to this

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static 
address 192.168.100.1 
netmask 255.255.255.0

and ran 

sudo ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0

but still there is no connection.

I think - you have to replace here eth0 with usb0 :)
The following page is for the Raspberry, but could also help your OPi with the /etc/network/interfaces or the configuration within windows:

BTW: this forum is searchable. It's pretty easy to search for g_ether and then end up here for example:
