If your system is configured with zeroconf support (Avahi, Bonjour, etc) you can simply connect to the TS-4710 with:

telnet ts4710-<last 6 characters of the MAC address>.local
# You will need to use your TS-4710 MAC address, but 
# for example if you mac is 00:d0:69:01:02:03
telnet ts4710-010203.local

When the board first powers up it has two network interfaces. The first interface eth0 is configured to use IPv4LL, and eth0:0 is configured to use DHCP. The board broadcasts using multicast DNS advertising the _telnet._tcp service. You can use this to query all of the available TS-4710s on the network.

From Linux you can use the avahi commands to query for all telnet devices with:

avahi-browse _telnet._tcp

Which would return:

+   eth0 IPv4 TS-4710 console [4f47a5]                      Telnet Remote Terminal local
+   eth0 IPv4 TS-4710 console [4f471a]                      Telnet Remote Terminal local

This will show you the mac address you can use to resolve the board. In this case you can connect to either ts4710-4f47a5 or ts4710-4f47a5.


From Windows you can use Bonjour Print Services to get the dns-sd command. OSX also comes preinstalled with the same command. Once this is installed you can run:

dns-sd -B _telnet._tcp

Which will return:

Browsing for _telnet._tcp
Timestamp     A/R Flags if Domain                    Service Type              Instance Name
10:27:57.078  Add     3  2 local.                    _telnet._tcp.             TS-4710 console [4f47a5]
10:27:57.423  Add     3  2 local.                    _telnet._tcp.             TS-4710 console [4f47a5]

This will show you the mac address you can use to resolve the board. In this case you can connect to either ts4710-4f47a5 or ts4710-4f47a5.
