Hello,

I have an arduino ethernet shield that I purchased recently from radioshack. I based my first "server" project on Adam Meyer's design here: (http://bildr.org/2011/06/arduino-ethernet-pin-control/). When set up, the ip address is only usable within my network. Is the server supposed to only be in my network? I'm kinda new with ethernet/internet connected arduino. Basically, is there a way to make the server viewable from outside my network?

Thanks!

You would need to allow or open a port in you router to steer or "forward" the request to the ip address of you Arduino. Also if your using port 80 your ISP most likely blocks requests to port 80 so if you reassign it to port 8080 that should work. You will need to know your ip address assigned to your router  you could use whatsmyip google it. Then enter http://youripaddress:8080 on your phone and if all is well it work.

The usual way to provide outside access is to use a dynamic IP service like www.no-ip.com or www.dyndns.com and port foward on your router.
Google forum search: Use Google Advanced Search and use Http://forum.arduino.cc/index in the "site or domain:" box.

Hi Don,
Thanks for your reply. It seems that this still doesn't allow me to access my arduino server from outside my wifi network...

Hi zoomkat,
So how would I connect to that service if I decide to buy a domain?
Thanks

those are free first off.
Typically your router will have an option in it to automagically update those domains with your current ip address.
