Network configuration options

01 November 2011 - 07:28 PM

I have a netduino plus board that I need to send to an off-site colleague. The problem is that he'll need to reconfigure the network configuration on his side since I currently only have a static IP address assigned to my local subnet. What are the options for allowing an end user to change the network configuration? As it is, I guess I could ask them to install the .NET CF just so they could use MFDeploy, but that seems a little overkill. Is there a simpler way? Is there a light-weight network configuration tool for a .NET MF device? If not, what would be involved in writing one? Alternatively, could I parse a file stored on a micro SD card on device start and have the Netduino configure itself that way? Any ideas welcomed!

Build Error 0xfd000000

07 September 2011 - 05:14 PM

I keep getting this error whenever I try and build my project. The error code is all there is, there is no other information other than the "file" column which says MMP(?). Does anybody know what the problem here is?

ushort to byte[]

06 September 2011 - 06:51 PM

Anybody know how to do the above? Convert a 16-bit integer to two bytes in the micro framework (and vice versa). In the full framework I'd just use BitConverter, but apparently that doesn't exist in the micro world. Also, I'm gonna need to convert 32-bit doubles to and from byte arrays.

MFDeploy Hangs on Network Configuration

29 August 2011 - 01:41 PM

I just got the Netduino plus board and I opened up MFDeploy to try and configure the network. However, when I got to Target -> Configuration -> Network, the MFDeploy program just hangs and nothing happens. The on-board LED lights on the Netduino board and then goes out after a while, but the MFDeploy app fails to respond. Only when I disconnect the USB cable does it come up with an error message "Device had old or unsupported configuration". What gives?

RS232 Advice

23 August 2011 - 08:09 PM

Hi all, I want to connect my Netduino board to a piece of equipment that has an RS-232 port. What do I need to get started? To be more specific, I'm only interested in connecting to the device, not to a PC and I'm not looking for a Serial to USB Convertor. The device I'm using has a 9 pin female connector and uses a minimal 3 wire serial port. I only need to connect the TxD, RxD and ground. I thought I might be able to do this directly from the board, but that doesn't seem to work (the device has a light that flashes if it doesn't understand the serial communication it's receiving, I had a very simple program running on the Netduino to send a known good command when the on-board button is pressed, but it doesn't seem that the device recognizes it). The device runs on 5V, so maybe that's part of the problem. Any pointers or advice here would be greatly appreciated. I know I might need a shield, but I don't know which is the right one to get. Thanks! Edit: another related question. If I was to set up the Netduino to send a string of bytes on COM1, then I tied pin 1 back to pin 0, shouldn't I be able to read the exact same data back again?
