Post Zaurus Terminal


Hi,
I have a Zaurus SL-5600, which I love. But I can't seem to figure out how to get to the terminal. Could someone help me here? The other question I have is: Does the zaurus have samba? If it does, how can I access that? I want to exchange files between linux computers (I have a socket wireless card on the zaurus, so I can network.) Many thanks

There is a program on the Installation CD called (ironically enough) "terminal" that you can install to get the equivalent of a Xterminal. Personally I recommend the EmbeddedKonsole version. You can get the ipkg here:

The zaurus does have samba and actually an ftp server as well. I believe it uses samba to transfer files when you "sync" with a windows machine. Though, I installed ssh on my Z in order to copy stuff to my linux box. You can get sshd there as well:

I have got the term working, I figured out the fact that it was on the cd thirty minutes after posting. Oh well. But I still need help w/ the networking. I've got open ssh, but I another version from a different part of the ZSI site (this other version came directly from the openssh people). What do I do in SSH? I have RH9 on my linux box, which has a version ssh, but I don't know how to get these two kids together.
Thx

First verify that sshd is up and listening on the machine you're trying to connect to. Just run (on that machine):

netstat -al

You should see an entry like this:
Code:
   
tcp        0      0 yourhostname:ssh *:*                     LISTEN
If you have sshd up and running, you can copy a file from where you are working to the remote machine using:

Code:
$> scp <file> <username>@<remotehost>:{<directory>}
Where username is obviously a user on the machine your connecting to and remotehost is the name of the host or its ip address.

If you get a "connection refused" then you need to check your firewall or /etc/hosts.allow file.

Check out this howto on how to use the scp command:

Why not just nfs-mount the desktop on Z and use rsync to copy files? That's what I do.
