Configuring the Burt Internal PC As A Static IP

The goal of this tutorial is to configure the ethernet port at the back of the BURT internal PC to have a static IP address. This allows the user to connect an external PC to the internal PC through the ethernet connection at the back of the console, over the static IP address configured. The user is expected to know how to configure their PC, or laptop, to have a static IP address on an ethernet port. Setting this up allows for a lot of flexibility to be achieved as the PC can be connected to a network, a single PC, or otherwise and a server can be run on the PC which passes through low or high-level commands to the mainboard. As an added benefit the internal PC can now be easily accessed over ssh.

Throughout the instructions we will use the static IP address of with a netmask of (or /24). This can be set as needed by the user.
