#8550 Does the ESP8266 only respond to +++AT comands via the telnet connection or am I missing something?

For me it would be handy if the commands were also available via the serial port so my "smart client" could use the serial port to establish a connection to the AP and open a socket for listening. This would allow me to display the allocated IP address via a LCD - making the remote connection easier. Know this is not 100% transparent but the Hayes command set rarely if ever had a problem with binary files.

#8602 Hi,

the guys around here seem to be all experts about modifying ESP8266 firmware, setting up toolchains etc.

I'm pretty experienced in programming in Delphi and Propeller-Chip (SPIN and Assembler) and some Arduino skteches. But I have NO experience about toolchains etc.

Does there exist a tool for uploading a new firmware into the ESP8266s flash?

I mean something simple as ponyprog
Start loader-tool on a windows PC
load compiled ROM-image
flash it
everything is done

best regards

Stefan

It is presently configured only to respond to the +++AT (Hayes like) commands via the network. I see what you want to do. Is there an issue already on the github that aligns with your needs?

Yes, you are absolutely correct. In dynamic configuration mode it is possible for the network side to trip the +++AT commands if you are really unlucky. If that is a concern, you can disable the +++AT commands by doing a static configuration as described in the README.md.
