This page tries to explain how to prepare server to handle trb version2.


  1. server has ethernet interface eth0 with IP:
  2. trb has IP:

Providing IP for trb via DHCP server

  1. if you know MAC number let go to 3.
  2. run as root =/etc/init.d/dhcpd restart=(if you dont have dhcp deamon)
  3. check MAC address: after restart TRB you should find in the last lines of /var/log/daemon.log the entry DHCPDISCOVER and MAC of trb.
  4. add to /etc/dhcpd.conf following lines:
option broadcast-address;
option routers;
group {
  option domain-name-servers;

        host {
           hardware ethernet XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX;
where XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is MAC address of trb
  1. run as root /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart

Providing NFS directory on server

  1. install NFS sever on your machine
  2. unpack a content of etrax_fs.tar in /var/diskless/etrax_fs (current version you find on,
  3. add this line /var/diskless/etrax_fs 192.168.0.*(rw,sync,no_root_squash) to the /etc/exportfs
  4. export NFS ( on debian: with: /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart. If you dont have this script or it is not working, see google: nfs server),
  5. run exportfs, bash should return /var/diskless/etrax_fs
