Topic: Arduino Ethernet Shield and PachubeClient (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi everyone

Yesterdag i started with testing the Pachube Client code from the Arduino website.
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/PachubeCient now I changed the MAC adress, IP adress, API key, FEED ID and the useragent. When I upload the code everything is fine. When the code is running and when I open the serial monitor it always says

-connection failed
-disconnecting

I do not know what I'm doing wrong?
It's probably something with client.connect (server,80) but i did not chance anything to the original code so I do not have u clue of what's wrong.

many thanks for the help (:

/*
  Pachube sensor client

This sketch connects an analog sensor to Pachube (http://www.pachube.com)
using a Wiznet Ethernet shield. You can use the Arduino Ethernet shield, or
the Adafruit Ethernet shield, either one will work, as long as it's got
a Wiznet Ethernet module on board.

This example has been updated to use version 2.0 of the Pachube.com API.
To make it work, create a feed with a datastream, and give it the ID
sensor1. Or change the code below to match your feed.


Circuit:
* Analog sensor attached to analog in 0
* Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13

#define FEEDID         55869 // replace your feed ID
#define USERAGENT      "Pachube Dashboard Temperatuur" // user agent is the project name

// assign a MAC address for the ethernet controller.
// Newer Ethernet shields have a MAC address printed on a sticker on the shield
// fill in your address here:
byte mac[] = {0x90, 0xA2, 0xDA, 0x00, 0x6D, 0xA2};

// fill in an available IP address on your network here,
// for manual configuration:
IPAddress ip(172,20,4,107);
// initialize the library instance:
EthernetClient client;

// if you don't want to use DNS (and reduce your sketch size)
// use the numeric IP instead of the name for the server:
//IPAddress server(216,52,233,122);      // numeric IP for api.pachube.com
char server[] = "api.pachube.com";   // name address for pachube API

unsigned long lastConnectionTime = 0;          // last time you connected to the server, in milliseconds
boolean lastConnected = false;                 // state of the connection last time through the main loop
const unsigned long postingInterval = 10*1000; //delay between updates to Pachube.com

void setup() {
  // start serial port:
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("Serial port ready");
// start the Ethernet connection:
  if (Ethernet.begin(mac) == 0) {
    Serial.println("Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP");
    // DHCP failed, so use a fixed IP address:
    Ethernet.begin(mac, ip);
  }
}

void loop() {
  // read the analog sensor:
  int sensorReading = analogRead(A0);   

  // if there's incoming data from the net connection.
  // send it out the serial port.  This is for debugging
  // purposes only:
  if (client.available()) {
    char c = client.read();
    Serial.println("client available");
    Serial.print(c);
  }

  // if there's no net connection, but there was one last time
  // through the loop, then stop the client:
  if (!client.connected() && lastConnected) {
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println("disconnecting.");
    client.stop();
  }

  // if you're not connected, and ten seconds have passed since
  // your last connection, then connect again and send data:
  if(!client.connected() && (millis() - lastConnectionTime > postingInterval)) {
    sendData(sensorReading);
  }
  // store the state of the connection for next time through
  // the loop:
  lastConnected = client.connected();
}

// this method makes a HTTP connection to the server:
void sendData(int thisData) {
  // if there's a successful connection:
  if (client.connect(server, 80)) {
    Serial.println("connecting...");
    // send the HTTP PUT request:
    client.print("PUT /v2/feeds/");
    client.print(FEEDID);
    client.println(".csv HTTP/1.1");

    client.println(USERAGENT);
    client.print("Content-Length: ");

    // calculate the length of the sensor reading in bytes:
    // 8 bytes for "sensor1," + number of digits of the data:
    int thisLength = 8 + getLength(thisData);
    client.println(thisLength);

    // last pieces of the HTTP PUT request:
    client.println("Content-Type: text/csv");
    client.println("Connection: close");
    client.println();

    // here's the actual content of the PUT request:
    client.print("sensor1,");
    client.println(thisData);
 
  }
  else {
    // if you couldn't make a connection:
    Serial.println("connection failed");
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println("disconnecting.");
    client.stop();
  }
   // note the time that the connection was made or attempted:
  lastConnectionTime = millis();
}


// This method calculates the number of digits in the
// sensor reading.  Since each digit of the ASCII decimal
// representation is a byte, the number of digits equals
// the number of bytes:

int getLength(int someValue) {
  // there's at least one byte:
  int digits = 1;
  // continually divide the value by ten,
  // adding one to the digit count for each
  // time you divide, until you're at 0:
  int dividend = someValue /10;
  while (dividend > 0) {
    dividend = dividend /10;
    digits++;
  }
  // return the number of digits:
  return digits;
}

Are you able to connect to any server?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
