I'm having a hard time figuring this out. I'm using the ethercard_master library and have hooked up all the pins accordingly.
The unit I'm using is http://www.ebay.com/itm/251612003167?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I'm trying to run the backsoon script but I'm running into problems. When trying to connect to the ip address, my browser gives me an error
Code: [Select]
This service is currently unavailable

The main server is currently off-line.
Please try again later.

I've also tried port forwarding my module with no avail
I've tried changing the mac address as well, and I'm pretty sure I'm connected to the right gateway address

The Serial Monitor is producing this
Code: [Select]

however connecting to the IP gives me the error as stated before.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 ether.printIp("IP:  ", ether.myip);

You have a sketch that writes "This service is currently unavailable" when a browser would connect to it.
So when you connect to it with a browser, you get the text "This service is currently unavailable".
You can change that text into "Hello World", so you would see "Hello World" in your browser.

I thought that was an error message  :~ . Well then, you are a wonderful person. Thank you very much

New problem. I'm trying to access my arduino from outside my LAN.
This tutorial :http://forum.bildr.org/viewtopic.php?t=416
talks about connecting the arduino directly to the modem. I've tried that and now the only way I can connect to it is from the address
However that's still only on my LAN. I want to be able to connect through mobile devices anywhere in the world.
Does anyone know how i can accomplish this?
