#60292 I want to control ESP-12 pins from android device. I create simple app that connect to ESP-12 and then send a string to ip (192.168.56.1) and port 900. I write below code but seem's not work correctly.
How to change IP and port in AP mode?
How to receive string ?

my code
Code: Select all#include <ESP8266WebServer.h>
//************************************
String LED;
String LED_mod;
//************************************
const char *ssid = "kc_test";
const char *ip = "192.168.54.1";

ESP8266WebServer server(900);

void setup() {
  delay(1000);
  Serial.begin(115200);
    Serial.println();
  Serial.print("Configuring access point...");
    WiFi.softAP(ssid);

  IPAddress myIP = WiFi.softAPIP();
  Serial.print("AP IP address: ");
  Serial.println(myIP);
    server.begin();
//************************************
  pinMode(12, OUTPUT);

}
void loop() { 
  server.handleClient();   
 
if (LED=="A"){  digitalWrite(12, HIGH); }
if (LED=="a"){  digitalWrite(12, LOW);  }
}

#60368 For one of my projects, I set up a softAP to use UDP broadcasts. Perhaps you can adapt:
Code: Select all/*
   GPS Portal, part of Tardis Time Server by: M. Ray Burnette 20150915
   Create a private 10. network and capture all DNS requests to the Time Portal
   Respond to UDP and DHCP and DNS

   ESP8266 core: http://arduino.esp8266.com/staging/package_esp8266com_index.json
      Sketch uses 235,297 bytes (54%) of program storage space. Maximum is 434,160 bytes.
      Global variables use 32,153 bytes (39%) of dynamic memory, leaving 49,767 bytes for local variables.

#60848 Thanks mrburnette for your reply.

I wrote android application that connect to ip "192.168.56.1". this app have two buttons that send char "A" and "a" on port "8888". flash my esp8266 with "esp8266 flasher" and use AT commands to set AP mode, IP and port.
I receive "A" and "a" in therminal. It seams my android app is work correctly.
I wanna read string from my android app. can you help me to find my fault?
Code: Select all#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <WiFiClient.h>
#include <ESP8266WebServer.h>

const char *ssid = "Test_ESP";
const char *password = "testtest";

unsigned int localPort = 8888;                                  // any unused port on LAN
IPAddress    apIP(192, 168, 56, 1);                               // Private network address: local & gateway
IPAddress    broadcastIP(255, 255, 255, 255);                   // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast
struct ip_addr *IPaddress;
IPAddress address;
ESP8266WebServer server(8888);


void setup() {
  delay(1000);
  Serial.begin(115200);
  Serial.println();
  Serial.print("Configuring access point...");

  WiFi.mode(WIFI_AP);       
  WiFi.softAPConfig(apIP, apIP, IPAddress(255, 255, 255, 0));
  WiFi.softAP(ssid, password);
  IPAddress myIP = WiFi.softAPIP();
  Serial.print("AP IP address: ");
  Serial.println(myIP);
  Serial.print(" MAC Address is:");
  Serial.println (WiFi.softAPmacAddress());

  server.begin();
  Serial.println("HTTP server started");
}

void loop()
{
  // Check if a client has connected
  WiFiClient client = server.available();
  if (client) {
    // Read the first line of the request
    String req = client.readStringUntil('\r');
    Serial.println(req);
    client.flush();
    Serial1.println("Client disonnected");

  }

#60851 Fiest, you are talking about AT command, but you are using an Arduino sketch.
Beware that when you upload Arduino sketch, the AT firmware is gone/erased.

For you code, I don't see any client.available(), so it doesn't check if characters are received.
Check the following code instead :

Code: Select allvoid loop()
{
  // Check if a client has connected
  WiFiClient client = server.available();
  if (client) {
    if (client.available()) { // <--- here is the missing part
      // Read the first line of the request
      String req = client.readStringUntil('\r');
      Serial.println(req);
      client.flush();
      Serial1.println("Client disonnected");
    }
  }
}
