I’m going to this meetup group at a coffee shop next week and will be taking my tx2 with me. I will need an internet connection on my TX2 for the development work I’m wanting to accomplish there. Obviously, I guess I’ll use ssh for my remote session and will probably just use scp for moving files over from my laptop.
My understanding is that I can have my TX2 connect over wifi but I don’t know how to setup a static ip and would appreciate some instruction there. Otherwise, I have no idea how to find my dynamic ip of my tx2 from my laptop when connected to the coffee shops wifi. I guess I could nmap their network but rather not go through that ordeal. Ideally, in this method I would use a static ip to remote in over ssh using the coffee shops wifi.
Is there any other way to do this with a cross over Ethernet cable? I’ve ordered one yesterday and was hoping I could just hook up my tx2 to my laptop using this cross over and piggy back off my laptops wifi connection. I thought this would be more secure and a better setup in general but that is just a guess. Regardless, I have no idea how to set this up other than plug in the cross over cable.
What’s the most ideal way here that is easiest enough for a newb like myself to setup. If you could dumb it down and provide some methodical steps in setting the most ideal method up it would be much appreciated. Links are welcomed as well.
