Connection Error

Postby Eugenia » 16:21, 12 Dec 2014

I am new to Evothings and am simply trying to ran the example LED On/Off TCP from my android phone. After putting in the IP address I keep getting a connection error. Anybody have any idea, I cannot find any answers to this problem on the forum or anywhere else.

Thanks

did you walk through the blog post we had on this?

http://evothings.com/blink-a-led-on-the-intel-edison-dev-board-using-your-smartphone/

the secret to this is to make sure you have the right IP address - the sketch will display this in the serial monitor when the sketch starts up. it can take up to a minute for the Edison to boot up and actually start running your sketch.

Yes Adiri,
I followed these instructions step by step. And I am also copying in the IP Address from the Arduino board exactly as I see it. I am really at a loss. been at it the whole day, and still receive a connection error.

Best regards,
Eugenia

are you on the same subnet/network? for example, if the Arduino has an IP address like 192.168.0.10 - your mobile phone must also be able to connect to it via the same network. it should be connected using WiFi - if you are only connected to your mobile phone network, you wont be able to reach the Arduino :)

the only thing I can think of is if your WiFi network has client isolation functionality enabled which prevents your devices from talking to each other - but, if you were able to push the application out to the Android phone using the workbench - there should be a connection. you may need to review the debugging logs - the first is on the serial monitor (for Arduino, where you get the IP address). the second; is within the Workbench itself, click on the "TOOLS" menu bar and you may see some additional information from the Android application shown there - maybe best to cut and paste and share it here?

I connected to a different network and now my phone is connected to the Arduino. However when I press on LED on I get these messages in the serial Monitor window:

The Led does not come on. Do you know what this could mean?

much better!

did you connect an LED to pin 2 with a 220 Ohm resistor? you could also use a multimeter to verify the pin is actually going high as well when you press the ON button. The LED on/off examples require some hardware setup (wiring)

It is currently 0.59V on pin2 when I press LED ON. But it fluctuates. It is the same when I press LED OFF, though I am expecting it to be 0V.

It works now! I thought it the LED was well connected. Maybe it wasn't. Didn't change anything, just reconnected. Thanks so much for the help! :D :D :D
