Serial monitor on Wifi port connection
Feb 13th, 2020 at 3:58pm
 
Hello, I want to know where the serial monitor connect to when I choose a IP direction instead of serial COM port.

Once the code is loaded over OTA on ESP32 board, if I open the serial monitor it connect to somewhere. At least the Connect status turn green, indicating it's connected.

So, where it connect? To some port on the ESP32 board? Or, is there a way to use this connection to show remote data?

Regards.

We are working on the OTA debugger and also the terminal for Esp boards. Hopefully available over the next or so.

Currently Ip address terminal is for Arduino boards that use SSH but that is an older more cumbersome system than the ESP solution.

In the latest forum release the Serial Debugger will work over the UDP transport on the ESP32 platform, to give a wireless debugging experience with all the Break/Watch/@plot etc.. features of the Serial Debugger.... just not the wires.

There is a walk through video on YouTube, and we will update when we have finalised the route to output your own custom messages to the Serial monitor window.

We have released an update 20.07.08.4, which will allow custom messages to be sent:-
https://www.visualmicro.com/forums/YaBB.pl?board=VS_ARDUINO_EXT_RELEASES

To Send a Custom Message
1) Ensure the Serial Debugger is enabled as normal, with the UDP options set
2) Add the call as below, with the message you want to send (ignore intellisense error, it will build when compiled)
Code:
MicroDebug.sendUserMessage("Hello UDP-Serial Terminal"); 



3) Connect the UDP debugger as normal, and your message should now appear in the Remote Serial Monitor window.

Let us know if you have any problems around this, and we will be updating the documentation to explain this feature shortly.
