mounting the SL-6000

If the zaurus is recognized and you want to simply connect via USB use the following script:

#!/bin/bash
/sbin/ifconfig usb0 192.168.129.200 netmask 255.255.255.255 up
/sbin/route add -host 192.168.129.201 usb0
ssh 192.168.129.201

This is not my script, but it works like champ.
This presumes of course you have ssh on your 6000, the 6000 is recognized and you have USB networking setup.

You can access the zaurus from the terminal  OR use
ssh://username@192.168.129.201 (I use root for username, forgive me) from Nautilus(Connect to server-Custom Location-Fill in the blanks), or I assume similiiar in Konquerer.

I am not sure if this is what you are after, but this will work.  If you want to connect at startup, let the script run at startup.

Hope that helps,

I also get the warning about packet length. Seems to be harmless.

Well, if the other script suggested works, great, then you don't have to kill the dhcpcd

Otherwise look in /etc/dhclient.conf for a line that says something like

require domain-name-servers

and comment it out (with a # at the beginning of the line) if it exists.

Both places I run dhclient, my dhclient.conf has only comments.

Arcmeanvil, thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it out as soon as I get back to my pc.

MeaninglessNick, you mentioned that the package length is not a problem, but seem to think I could establish a connection. How can I use it though? I tried to use samba or ping or ssh to 192.168.129.201, but without success.

Thanks

The other error messages are a problem unfortunately.

You need to convince dhclient that it is OK that the zaurus does not return an
IP address for a name server.  This is usually the default, unless someone adds a directive
to the dhclient configuration file.

Concerning establishing the connection with dhcpcd (standard in Suse): Arcmeanvil, thanks, the script you submitted works great.

Concerning the alternative client dhclient (used by other distributions): MeaninglessNick, if I comment out the line in dhclient.conf, it also works. Thanks you especially for your patience!

I can now use the network to transfer files with samba or connect with ssh.

Does anyone have input on how to establish usb-host to host networking when not using the crdle? I don't have a second cradle, but I do have the mini-a adaptor and would like to be able to newtork the zaurus while on a second machine. Thanks in advance for any help...
