Topic: Connecting two arduinos to the arduino software ? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hello,

(I am new to this forum)

I have two arduino's connected to my mac with two usb cables.
I want one sketch to connect to the first arduino, and another to connect to the second one. And I would like to open a serial monitor for each arduino (simultaneously). Is this possible ?

Whenever I select a usb interface, it connects both sketch to this interface (instead of only one)
Whenever I open a serial monitor, it automatically closes the existing serial monitor. It seems impossible to open two serial monitors.

Is the arduino software meant to be used with only one arduino at a time ?

Thank you for any help.

No itis not possible.
To do this you have to use another terminal program so it can open a separate USB port.

Hi Paul! Welcome!

I do this all the time ;-). It isn't possible from when running a single Arduino IDE but it is not a problem to start several Arduino IDE's and connect them to different COM ports. I work mostly on Linux and need to test network protocols etc. Then this comes in handy.

Cheers!
