Severals step are executed by POD Installer to establish a connection with your device :

* Open a Telnet session.
* Change Telnet prompt to [END_COMMAND]. This is very important and allow POD Installer to recognize when a Telnet command is finished.
* Try to ping the local webserver from your device. This is a basic control of your network setup.
* Download the driver script to your device and change its permissions to make it executable.
* Execute a "doInstallDriver" operation on the driver. This allow driver specific operations.
