Give Your Arduino Project It’s Own Mini-Webserver, With An Ethernet Shield

DFRobot Apr 09 2013 302

James Bruce showed us how to set up an Arduino as a basic webserver so we can host our own device control website. 

 

You will need:

  • An Arduino
  • Ethernet Shield – make sure you get a version that matches your Arduino as they aren’t all compatible
  • Spare port on your router or switch, and Ethernet cable
  • The WebServer example provided in the Arduino application

 

First, you have to set up – open up the File-Examples-Ethernet-WebServer that’s provided within the Arduino IDE. Find the lines referring MAC and IP address. Next up is the IP address. We want a specific fixed address so we can setup port forwarding properly – the shield is capable of getting an address from DHCP, but that’s only useful if it’s merely going to be used as a client, not a server. Fill in an IP address that’s unused and memorable on your local network, your router IP, and 255.255.255.0 (the subnet). For next step or more information, you can go to MakeUseOf
