Brand new to NodeMPU ESP8266 with lots of PC and Arduino programming experience. I want to control a robot with a PC running a vb.net forms program. The robot has ESP8266 in it. The robot and PC both send/receive data so 2-way com is needed.

I need guidance on how to set the communications link and the path for the data. (not programming help, more like overview or block connection scheme.) For example which of the below options make the most sense?

[list=]Set this up for the PC and NodeMPU to talk to each other via my local network (which would be convenient.)
Set the Node up as a server and connect to it directly? (not as convenient).
Some other connection strategy?[/list]
