Arduino + Ethernet Shield + Web Server

Hello I am trying to basically send url commands to a web server and have the Arduino process the commands to control a device such as a motor. I am looking for the easiest way to do this.

  • Can the Ethernet Shield actually be a web server or do I need to use a PC to host the page? If so is it basic HTML? If not what is the best way to serve a simple HTML or other Language page?

  • I need to have 3 to 5 buttons an the page (momentary push buttons) that will control the Arduino's Analog / Digital outputs

Any help would be greatly appreciated ;D

Have you looked at:

There are a number of examples that can be modified to do what you want.

I've got some code posted in the below link for web control of servos that might be of use. You will need to use some javascript in your web page to make "momentary" control buttons.
