Communicate with the Board


#1

Hi i am currently learning and setting up the board. I scrolled through the documentation but i cannot find any examples or best practice on how to connect and communicate with the board.
I use a mac book or a ubuntu linux box or a raspberry pi but i have not yet figured out how to connect.
the smoothie board is somewhat more specific and allows to activate a web interface and gives access via an ip address, how does that work with JuicyBoard?? can you provide a more step by step tutorial on how to do that? or give some advice on what host software is needed ?

many thanks
cheers

Hey @bubblerobot
You should be able to communicate directly using serial port over USB, there’s also a serial console on UART0 (slot #8) that you can hook up to an FTDI USB serial adapter, please take a look at this page to get started
