Transfer files from VM to Dev Kit SD card

One common question new users have is "how do I get xyz file onto my SD card?".

SCP the file from your VM

This is the preferred method to copy files from the VM to the development kit. You first need to ensure that the VM is on the same DHCP capable network as the development kit board is. On the serial port of the development board find the current IP address of the unit by entering the "ifconfig" command.

From your Linux virtual machine open a new terminal and cd to the directory containing the file you want to copy. In this example we will copy the "readsysid" binary to the development board.

scp ./readysid root@

This will copy the file to the development kit at the /home/root/ directory level
