Some improvements on the network interface have been made on OpenCN targets.
DHCP support has been enabled: if the OpenCN target is connected to a netwrok which has a
DHCP server, it gets it IP from it.
DHCP present on the network, the OpenCN target falllback to a static IP and acts as
DHCP server. It is the case, for example, when the target is directly connected to a PC.
avahi has also been enabled to simply communication with the OpenCN target.
ssh it is possible to log on the target. It is a good complement of the serial interface. It also offers a simple way to copy files between the host and the target with
avahi lets uses to connect to the target using target
HOSTNAME instead of the IP.
