    how to access remote into WICED webserver?

    eyan

      Based on WICED 3.3.1, I'd like to make web server and make any devices accessible anywhere.

      I saw serveral discussions like How to create a global HTTP server ? .

       

      I tested appliance demo,

      and found that no devices which has different gateway with WICED can not access WICED webpage.

       

      My AP has 192.168.0.1 and WICED appliance is connected to my AP with 192.168.0.13.

      My mobile phone can view button page when mobile phone is connected to my AP,

      but it can not when it is connected to other AP.

       

      which application is good for remote access ?

      ** I tried to make temp_control application, but found xively does not support personal account creation any more.

       

      Thanks

          Hi,

           

          There is a difference between Xively, AWS, etc and the http webserver running on Wiced device.

           

          Xively and services like Xively create a connection between their (Xively) server and the Wiced device in question. User connects to Xively server and Xively server connects to the Wiced device and exchange data. In this case the http server running on the Xilvely server and the Xively client running on the Wiced device.

           

          For Wiced http webserver case, user directly connects to the Wiced device and exchange data over the http server running on the Wiced device. There is no middle man in place the exchange data securely.

           

          To access the http server running on the Wiced device, user needs to be on the same network as the Wiced device is connected or router allows users to access the http server running on the Wiced device outside of the private network. This is simply a setup of the router and perhaps optionally getting registered on the DNS server. Perhaps this article Web Server Setup Behind a Router  or similar one would help you to setup your network.

           

          Thanks,
          Seyhan

            This is nothing to do with WICED.

            It's your local network setting issue.

            Can your mobile phone connect to any other devices (e.g. NB/PC) using "My AP" while

            your mobile phone is connected to "other AP"?

              Seyhan,

               

              Thinking the service that the mobile phone in remote network controls WICED board in my home,

              I hope not to use any server. Is it possible?

                I believe you can use port forwarding, which as Seyhan mentioned, you would need to set up in your router. You might run into trouble if your ISP dynamically assigns you an IP, or if they assign multiple people to your IP.
