Connecting the IoT Box with a network
The IoT Box communicates with an Odoo instance through the network. Connecting the IoT Box is a crucial step and if you make a mistake here, you might encounter errors when connecting the IoT Box with Odoo.
Mount the microSD card with the IoT Box image into the Raspberry Pi and then connect the Raspberry Pi with the power supply.
How to do it...
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ supports two types of network connection—Ethernet and Wi-Fi.
Connecting the IoT Box through Ethernet is simple; you just need to connect your IoT Box with the RJ45 Ethernet cable, and the IoT Box is then ready to be used. Connecting the IoT Box through Wi-Fi is complicated as you might not have a display attached to it. Perform the following steps to connect the IoT Box through Wi-Fi:
- Connect the IoT Box with the power supply (if the Ethernet cable is plugged into the IoT Box, remove it and restart the IoT Box).
- Open your computer...
