When men were real men and typed their own AT commands...

Thankfully, this may now be partially obsolete. The dialer now works!

Requirements

  • GTA01Bv2 or GTA01Bv3 with very recent u-boot bootloader, providing usbtty (serial over USB) support)
  • Do not connect any debug board!

Walk-Through

Booting the system

  • Make sure the rootfs you use has 'auto usb0' in /etc/network/interfaces
  • Configure the host's usb0 interface to 192.168.0.200 netmask 255.255.255.0
  • ssh to root@192.168.0.201

Disabling the getty

Our default images all have a getty running on /dev/ttySAC0, please edit /etc/inittab and disable the getty on that port

Reducing the loglevel

{{note|You don't need this in kernel builds with patchset
