Embedded linux ConnectMe 9210 services

I would like to know if the Embedded linux ConnectMe 9210 provides support libraries to services such as FTP, Telnet, Serial Protocol, etc. Also do we need a dedicated linux machine for Linux Digi ESP IDE to run for development purpose?

this has been asnwered in previous but yes you will need linux machine or VM and Digi ESP comes with bsp which supports multiple communications for supported device.
