Part 1 of the Arduino Ethernet Shield Web Server Tutorial
This multi-part tutorial shows how to set up an Arduino with Ethernet shield as a web server. The web servers in this tutorial are used to serve up web pages that can be accessed from a web browser running on any computer connected to the same network as the Arduino.
Some of the Arduino web server pages allow access to the Arduino hardware – this allows hardware to be controlled (e.g. switching on and off an LED from the web page) and monitored (e.g. reading the state of a switch and displaying it on a web page).
The hardware required for following this series of tutorials is:
There will be additional components required as listed in each tutorial, such as LEDs, resistors, switches, etc. and a breadboard and wire kit for building the circuits.
