Hi all! I don't have nearly no experience on webpage design and stuff like that. I have dreamweaver, and I once tried to build a website. I was just thinking if I use XAMPP, can I build a webpage that can be accessed within my local area network, that can send something to the serial port my Arduino is connected to?
Thanks a lot.

Hi Habib,

To connect your Arduino to the network you need one of these things:

- connect serial port to a computer that is on the network
- connect an Ethernet Shield or Module to your Arduino, and wire that to your network.

Bitlash Commander may be worth a look.  It allows you to control a usb-connected Arduino from a web dashboard:

Thank you all! Due to my budget, I don't think I can afford an ethernet shield yet.  :)

Bitlash looks really cool! But does it work with windows?
