Hi i am new to Arduino stuff,
Was wondering if there is any way of using the arduino uno to send data from one computer via the CAN BUS shield and display it onto another via another shield and arduino uno. I am a newbie to programming so any code would be helpful.

Cheers

My first response is 'Yes of course'... But I'm assuming you mean the following scheme:

[PC]----serial----[Arduino][CAN-Sheild]----CAN---[CAN-Shield][Arduino]---serial----[PC]

If you are just using CAN as a simple point-to-point link it's a bit of an overkill. Or are there other reasons for using it?
