Topic: wifly outside lan (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi everyone have a big problem to solve,
so i have server(spare laptop runing ubuntu server 10.04) running on my local lan which ip is no-ip address is lmasss.hopto.org) where i uploaded  tank.html but if i accsess my page using lmasss.hopo.org and try to move forward in responce from tank window i get error that my page all code similar to ethernet shield) is not accsesable.question is somhow to do so it still will send data from lmasss.hopo.org to so i can control tank from outside of my lan?

If you are using a router, you will need to port foward incomming traffic to your arduino server.  You will need to run your arduino on a different port than your pc server, such as port 81. In your html page you would have something like below.

thanx zoom for you fast replay so say i use port 8888 for arduino and do port forward , thats easy but what to do with html i totaly new to this :(

just changed port to 8888 and in html file http://lmasss.hopto.org:888?dir= tryed o connect now says cant connect lmasss.hopto.org:8888

restarted router and it worked

Thank you.
