Power on

One convenient way to power up Kinkan is by connecting it to a USB power source (e.g. your computer) by using a USB to mini USB cable. Alternatively, you may connect it to a 5V 1A power supply. A single LED (named PWR on our development kit) should light up upon powering. Give it at least 30 seconds to boot.

Now that we powered Kinkan on, let’s connect it via lan port. Configure your computer's network interface with IP address and netmask. Make sure that other devices on your network are not using this subnet! If everything is done correctly you should be able to reach it via the default IP address of

Log in

Kinkan is now reachable, so let’s login via ssh:

ssh root@

Or via telnet:


Or via your internet browser with the following URL:

By default your device does not have a password set so when logging in only enter username “root” and leave password field empty.
