After many many hassles, I have gotten an ethernet connection (or wifi, not sure which one is actually running) to work using Verdex XM4 and NetwifimicroSD. My home router sees it attached and reports MAC address and IP address, and I can ping the address successfully.
However, when I try to ssh into the gumstix to get a terminal, I get a "connection refused" error. The same error occurs when I try the "scp" command, as in the hello world tutorial.
Any ideas why the gumstix might be refusing my connections? And/or how I can break in?
