Multiples network connections

Hello,

I wanted to make a program which use webserver to control relay (easy) but send json url when a contact state change.

I’ve made this (from internet inspiration :slight_smile: ) :

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

byte mac[] = { 0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED }; //assign arduino mac address
byte ip[] = { 192, 168, 77, 107 }; // ip in lan assigned to arduino
byte gateway[] = { 192, 168, 77, 254 }; // internet access via router
byte subnet[] = { 255, 255, 255, 0 }; //subnet mask
EthernetServer server(80); //server port arduino server will use
EthernetClient client;
//char serverName[] = "web.comporium.net"; // (DNS) zoomkat's test web page server
byte serverName[] = { 192, 168, 77, 100 }; // (IP) zoomkat web page server IP address
String readString; //used by server to capture GET request 

//////////////////////////

void setup(){

  pinMode(4, OUTPUT); //pin 5 selected to control
  pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(2, INPUT_PULLUP);
  Ethernet.begin(mac,ip,gateway,gateway,subnet); 
  server.begin();
  Serial.begin(9600); 
  Serial.println("server/client 1.0 test 7/03/12"); // keep track of what is loaded
  Serial.println("Send an g in serial monitor to test client"); // what to do to test client
  attachInterrupt(digitalPinToInterrupt(2),sendChange, CHANGE);
  
  
}

void loop(){
  // check for serial input
  

  EthernetClient client = server.available();
  if (client) {
    while (client.connected()) {
      if (client.available()) {
        char c = client.read();

        //read char by char HTTP request
        if (readString.length() < 100) {

          //store characters to string 
          readString += c; 
          //Serial.print(c);
        } 

        //if HTTP request has ended
        if (c == '\n') {

          ///////////////
          Serial.println(readString); //print to serial monitor for debuging 

            //now output HTML data header

            client.println("<a href='/?1on' target='inlineframe'>ON</a>");

It works, but when I’m playing with the contact webserver stop responding.

Can anyone see want’s wrong ?

It works, but when I'm playing with the contact webserver stop responding.

You mean the contact attached to pin 2 ?
Do you see any output from your Serial.print() debug statements ?
You have one potentially infinite loop() which would fail silently:

while(client.connected() && !client.available()) delay(1); //waits for data

Yes Contact attached to pin2

On the debug I see disconnecting at the end, so i don't think it's a loop.

I've try to put a debug print on the loop()

After interrupt program continues to loop() but webserver is unavailable.
I

Found a dirty solution.
If I move server.begin() to the loop() it works :slight_smile:
