Hello all, Been an Arduino owner for about a week now, learning a lot, but a little stuck on a few things. I waa hoping someone would give a hand.
Having an issue getting the Ethernet shield to reach a outside server, for example trying to post a variable to a server that I have that is NOT on the local network.
I have tried many examples found on the net, a few from here and it just does not connect. I have placed the IP of the Arduino in the DMZ, I have set subnet and DNS. I am not new to networking so I am a bit stumpped as this should be working. ((I do have it set to get obtain an IP automatically, and that works as it prints to serial as well as to a 16x2 LCD I have hooked up.))
and my second issue is how to get the string from a text box. For example I have a working login form, I want to be able to put the email in a form and click submit, it should then store the email address in a variable. Nothing I have tried has worked and I am thinking maybe I am missing something about the way Arduino and html work.
Any hints or ideas? also if anyone know a GOOD tutorial on the way post and get work inside arduino HTML I would be grateful as I have seen many examples, and I think I understand how it works, but more information would be great.
