Hello Community,

i´m looking for the program Gobetwino, but the http://www.mikmo.dk/gobetwino.html website is down. is there an alternative downloadlink for the program or can somebody send me this programm otherwise?

greetings and thank you!

uxomm, thank you for the link. it worked. are there alternatives to gobetwino?

I have not used gobetwino yet. As much as I know gobetwino "listens" to the serial port and executes "commands" coming from Arduino.
Depending on your operating system, your needs and knowledge there are several other options.
You need to listen to a serial port, analyze it and do "something".
Until now I have done this with:
- Python
- Powershell (Windows only)
- AutoIt (Windows only)
- PHP
and I am sure there are many other options.

Always decouple electronic circuitry.

gobetweeno looked so promising but all I get is 'Unable to connect to Com4. permission denied'

Com4 has my arduino board connected. gobetweeno is supposed to connect to the same port to data transfer.

Only one application can use the serial port at a time. So if you have e.g. serial monitor open, gobetwino can not use it;  And vice versa. You can also not upload when gobetwino has the port in use.
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

I must have misunderstood the instruction manual then.

It says the CH340 creates a virtual serial port in windows so it is possible for the arduino to be connected to usb (without serial monitor on) and its port accesed by gobetweeno to pass messages back and forth.

I tried out the Arduino code line

Serial.println("#S|T|[]#");

to get the time but nothing was received.   Settings matched on both.

I only wanted this to work to set a RTC clock module with the correct time.

Those instructions are likely correct. If you use serial monitor instead of gobetwino, do you see what you tell the Arduino to print?

The only thing I tried to explain is that you can not use gibetwino and serial monitor at the same time. Or that you can't upload code while gobetwino is active.

I have no experience with gobetwino but that is how serial ports work.

If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

Thanks.

I turned on serial monitor and the command is sent ok. 

I have put this aside just now as another project requires finishing and it appears a house move is on the cards, so no playing for a while.
