I have recently purchased an Arduino WiFi shield (and Uno) with the hope of connecting it to a web site hosted by the www.iinet.com
domain. With the help of the great examples on this site, I am able to connect the shield to my router and read content from most of the web. For example, I can see web content from www.google.com
. My problem has to do with the fact the the PHP files I really want to talk to are hosted by my ISP (www.iinet.com
) and I can't seem to connect to my pages or to that site at all. I've tried using the domain name in statements such as: char server="www.iinet.com
"; and I've tried the IP address with no luck. Whenever I run "client.connect( server, 80);" where server describes that domain, all I get back is "false" (no connection).
I was wondering if someone else could use their shield and try pointing it to "www.iinet.com
" to see if you get the same results. If so, is there a reason why some sites do not result in a successful connection when using client.connect()? For example, if my ISP redirects the client, will that trigger a "false" when calling client.connect()? Any help would be appreciated. I'm looking forward to using my shield to help monitor and control my garden remotely (while I travel), but need to connect to my PHP pages first.
