How to connect to your brand new Mango? There are a couple of ways to do this and we do recommend:

  • Via serial: picocom for Linux and OSX, putty for Windows.
  • Ethernet: ssh for Linux and OSX, putty for Windows.

Serial connectivity is available via pins connection. Pins on block J18 (1 - 3.3V, 2 - UART_TXD, 3 - UART_RXD, 4 - GND) designed for serial/console connection. Also, you need UART - USB adapter to connect a console to your computer.

Putty (Windows)

Simply run the program, enter a COM port number, select the baudrate 115200 and click "connect".

Picocom (Linux, OSX)

Just run picocom with 115200 bps and a serial interface parameter. Your serial device might be named /dev/ttyUSB[n] where [n] is your serial id set by your operating system.

$ picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0

You can check your available serial devices with this command:

$ ls /dev/ttyUSB*

To exit from picocom press CTRL+a+x.
