What is with this new config menu rather than just hardcoding??
« on: November 10, 2018, 05:28:57 PM »
I'm trying out the SwitchMot and see there is a new architecture rather than just hardcoding the parameters.

I downloaded Putty but can't seem to get Putty to connect.  I killed Arduino IDE thinking maybe it had the comm port locked up.

My IDE programs on Com4.  I tried Putty on Com4 but it just keeps beeping at me when I click "Open"

Any ideas?

I downloaded MobaTerm rather than PuTTY and it seemed to work better.

Flow control should be NONE.

The SwitchMote configuration allows you to change the parameters without hardcoding them, and thus allows a generic sketch.
You may hardcode the parameters in the sketch of course, if that's what you prefer.
