Contents

SCP

client (find host pc ip-adress: scp <hostLoginName>@<hostIP>:/file .)

server (on host pc: 'scp <file> root@192.168.0.202:/tmp/')

TFTP

client ('tftp')

server?

NFS

client (on Neo: 'mount -t nfs ...' or edit /etc/fstab and '/etc/init.d/mountnfs.sh start')

server?

HTTP

client (on Neo: 'wget',web browser)

MicroSD

It is possible to write data to micro SD on a desktop machine with the suitable writer and then have it accessible from inside the OpenMoko after the card is inserted into that device. To get this working, the micro SD must be formatted in some filesystem that both OpenMoko and host understand (ext2, for instance).

The problem with this approach is that micro SD is difficult to access in the Neo. Both battery and even SIM card must be removed to reach it.

common methods not supported

  • FTP
  • SFTP
  • Bluetooth (except via other network methods)
