Topic: Lockup at Boot: ---> Udp.begin(localPort); (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi, I'm new to this forum and have a problem when trying to merge two network formats into one program.   There are probably alot of improvements to be had here overall... but my main problem is when adding the second example sketch.. it wont boot.  

I have both working separately, one is a web server that posts sensor info in a browser, and has one Digital Output controllable by a button.  This uses these network protocols:
EthernetClient client;
EthernetServer server(80);

The other that I am trying to merge into this web server sketch is the Ardumote example code...  each work fine separately, but merging the two causes the Mega2560 to lock up unless I comment out this line - the first line in Setup ():   Udp.begin(localPort);    //Ardumote  Setup UDP socket on port defined earlier.  THIS LOCKS UP UPON BOOT

Here's the code... there's allot I have a few things connected... all working ok though.  

If there's anything you can recommend... please do!  Thank you!

#define aref_voltage 3.3         // FOR temp36 temp sensor - we tie 3.3V to ARef and measure it with a multimeter!
