Ho do you log into the console using PUTTy?

The instructions say "You can also see the Console by opening a terminal window and typing ssh root@yourYunsName.local 'telnet localhost 6571' then pressing enter. NB: If you are using Windows, you must install a terminal emulator. PuTTY is a reasonable choice, but you will have to enter the two commands above separately."

I am using Windows XP and PUTTY. I can enter 192.168.1.78 into PUTTY, press open and Busy Box shows up. Next when I enter the command 'telnet localhost 6571' Busy Box says "'telnet localhost 6571' not found"

I am left with two questions. How do you enter the two commands separately when using PUTTY? How do you access the console when using WifI, PUTTY and Windows XP>

You need to wait bridge/console started then run 'telnet localhost 6571' . only one command is needed once you are in Busy Box - 'telnet localhost 6571'.

I finally found my dumb mistake. One needs to enter the telnet localhost 6571 command with no quotation marks. I got faked out by the way the command was written for Linux. ssh root@yourYunsName.local 'telnet localhost 6571' then pressing enter. For Linux they used quotation marks.

Well, writing it in code tags telnet localhost 6571would have made the possibility of this mistake less likely in the first place. But then you never know how people on a forum as this interpret answers… :wink:
