This recipe shows you how to find out the IP address and hostname of your Banana Pi.
The following components are required for this recipe:
Initiate the booting of your Banana Pi and wait for the desktop to appear.
Start a terminal application such as LXTerminal.
Type in the following
$ ifconfig eth0
This will output all the information of your Ethernet device (
eth0), including the IP address, subnet mask, MAC address, and some additional information. The IP address is the value after
inet addr:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX(for example, 192.168.0.2).
