Hi Jonathan, thanks for testing!
The weekly image I'm building right now makes this a bit easier, but
you'll want to do the following:
1. Get your IP Address:
[ log in as the root user, with password "freedom" ]
That'll tell you your box's IP address. You'll need that later.
2. Build Plinth:
[ log in as the fbx user, with password "frdm" ]
$ cd ~/
$ su -c "apt-get install python-bjsonrpc python-augeas"
3. Edit the cfg.py file, replacing the host = "127.0.0.1" line with:
host = "0.0.0.0"
That makes the web UI available to any computer.
4. Now, try running the UI:
Now, on the host machine, point your browser to:
$ http://(your box's ip address):8000
It should show you the UI.
If you get some error about file permissions, do this as root:
# chown -R fbx:fbx /home/fbx
