I've been very busy, download the zip, read the readme.txt
I've included all the source code to everything, my Server the client, and the arduino code, ideally some kind of header (include .h/cpp) would be good
to send and recv..
To debug it, disable the client (as only 1 program can share the com port) by simply closing it and use the Arduino IDE to make sure your board
is working.. when you're happy
run ArduinoClient.exe (sorry Windows only until someone who likes this is able to code a client in linux) the source code is all included.
(unless you wish to host, then you can run the server as well, but click on "loopback" so that it reconnects to 127.0.0.1 or it will connect
to myarduino.info on port 1234)
Step 1. Change the com port to yours, or change the system com port to com 4.
Step 2. Click on the connect button, then click on the Establish Connection (over com port, if it errors make sure Arduino is no in use on that port)
Step 3. Click on the Send button [pin2]
you if you have an LED connected to pin2 on your arduino, the light should light up, not only that, but my LED here (if you connected) will also light
//Serial.println("reset"); //switches off all the pins
from Arduino, just send it over the com port, the client then relays it to the server on and forward to everyone else.
I have mine on now, so if anyone tries this, i'll see my LED's go on and OFF, i've not put any effort into the server yet, eventually
i'll be able to have it so you can forward on packets to certain arduino's and not others, moderation, boot them off the server
right now, it's proof of concept
- and a lot of "ugh" moments for me today lol... so if anyone tries it, switch on my LED's
they're all off right now
