I'm new here, have a netduino that's been lying around, waiting to do something cool with it, and was wondering what the best solution is to pass data via ethernet to my Netduino (Netduino Plus 2). Simple HTTP stack or alike?


I'm looking to run one of those little thermal printers (Adafruit) off of it and send shopping lists and such to it to print from a pc based app ( because that's my go-to language for fun and tinkering), so I'd basically like to be able to pass a couple strings to the board for processing from a sub, maybe be able to get the IP address of the client at a stretch.


Can anyone point me towards a library that could be helpful? Thanks for your time, have a good day.

Hi rabbit, Welcome to the Netduino community! There are several ways to accomplish this. The easiest is probably to use the HttpServer feature of NETMF; check out the HttpServer sample in the .NET MF SDK. There are also some good lightweight web servers created by community members...and you can always just create a socket server which responds to custom raw data requests. .NET MF is .NET, so System.Net is there for you. Does that get you pointed in the right direction? Chris

for stuff like that id just use socket read and write, no http stuff.

I know it's not VB but I'd probably have a look at the NeonMika web server project.
