There’s no much in terms of software apart from an Arduino Sketch initializing Ethernet and connecting to Baidu.

I’m not sure why the 6-pin programming interface is needed, but a separate CH340C based “Downloader” board with Micro USB and USB-C ports is sold as an option with the board.  ESP32 should be programmable via the USB-C port unless the specs are wrong, and there isn’t any on-board CP2104 chip… The board photos are not clear enough to confirm…

LilyGO TTGO T-Internet-POE board is sold with a dual-row header for GPIO pin on Aliexpress for $15.77 plus shipping. The Downloader board found on the same page adds $1.15 to the total.
