RE: Why do I have to ping before telnet?

You probably haven't set the IP address in /etc/network/network.conf.
You can do that via telnet, ftp or http or you can set it in your
local tree (packages/initscripts/network/network.conf).

(And you probably have set an entry in your computers arp-cache so
that the board changes IP address when you ping it, aka the arp-ping
