LeapFrog Pollux Platform: Networking Applications
Here you will find a list of applications, and their usages.
For Didj only Networking Enabled
Set up telnetd
as a background daemon
or in the foreground
# telnetd -F
At this point you should be able to telnet from the host to the device.
$ telnet 10.0.0.2
This should leave you with a remote command line to your device.
Note the IP address that you assigned to the Didj, for example 10.0.0.2. To copy a file, for example "./myfile" from your PC to the Didj:
# nc -p 5600 -l -w 30 > myfile
$ nc 10.0.0.2 5600 -w 2 < myfile
When nc exits, you should see the file on the device.
Explorers Specific Applications
The LeapPad Explorer and Leapster Explorer both have sshd installed. With a little configuring, it is an easy way to transfer files back and forth.
First you'll need to access your device via a console, so you can edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. There are two settings you'll want to change.
PermitRootLogin yes PermitEmptyPasswords yes
Once you've saved the config file, you'll need to run.
$ /etc/init.d/sshd start
This will take a while as it generates the proper keys. If you have already configured your networking you can then run.
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
This should give you a remote command line over ssh to your device. You can also use any number of programs that support the ssh protocol for a graphic interface.
To enable SSH and SFTP permanently, you will have to modify the /etc/init.d/rcS file.
Add the following line in the same location as the telnetd and vsftpd startup (~line 138), or optionally outside the check for /flags/developer (~line 136):
/etc/init.d/sshd start; ### tim done "sshd"
This will run sshd during the start up process, making it available with out the need for console access.
