Hello,

I am working on some home automation with the Arduino ethernetshield (switching a LED on and off using an aspx website to start with!).
My aspx server (DNS & Application aspx framework 4.0) is up and running and I can easy connect to it with my laptop.

Also, my arduino EShield gets an IP address and I can ping towards it and etc. And yes they are in the same local network  smiley.

Now I want my arduino to connect to the website or a file such as 192.168.1.3/~inetpub/reader/default.aspx.
To do so, I use the following bit of code:

  if (client.connect(serverName, 80)) {
    Serial.println("connected");
    // Make a HTTP request:
    client.println("GET /inetpub/WebApplication1/WebForm2.txt HTTP/1.0");
    client.println();

But for some reason I get an HTTP 404 error, telling me there is no such website. This I find strange because my laptop can easy access it.
Is my client.prinln("GET ....); line wrong? Because that is the path to that file.

I have included the entire code in this post in case it would help.


PS: My guess is that the project would be easier using a php website/server, but none the less it should be able to with aspx aswell.

    Serial.println("Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP");
    // no point in carrying on, so do nothing forevermore:
    while(true);
  }
  // give the Ethernet shield a second to initialize:
  delay(1000);
  Serial.println("connecting...");

  // if you get a connection, report back via serial:
 
  if (client.connect(serverName, 80)) {
    Serial.println("connected");
    // Make a HTTP request:

    client.println();
  }

    // kf you didn't get a connection to the server:
    Serial.println("connection failed");
  }
}

void loop()
{
  // if there are incoming bytes available
  // from the server, read them and print them:
  if (client.available()) {
    char c = client.read();
    Serial.print(c);
  }

  // if the server's disconnected, stop the client:
  if (!client.connected()) {
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println("disconnecting.");
    client.stop();

    // do nothing forevermore:
    while(true);
