Topic: Arduino EthernetShield and aspx websites. (Read 2245 times) previous topic - next topic



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  :).

Now I want my arduino to connect to the website or a file such as
To do so, I use the following bit of code:

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

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.

Code: [Select]
  DNS and DHCP-based Web client

This sketch connects to a website (http://www.google.com)
using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.
