But .... I'd like to do it directly between the computer and ESP and haven't been able to find anything online about using soft AP that way.
So far I've done the basics, I blinked the LED, I connected to the ESP securely through wifi and now I'm kind of stuck.
If someone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction I'd appreciate any suggestions, right now I'm looking at MQTT since I found some C++ API stuff for MQTT that looks promising so I've been poking wildly at Mosquitto trying to make it work.
I'm working with:
A stand-alone USB programmer
Thatnks in advance.
