Have been trying to connect two EZ-Builders Together.
The unit that see the EZ-B V4 is 192.168.1.250 and it can Control The EZ-B v4. EZ-B V4 is board 0 and is served as port 6666 in the connection settings. On the Remote ARC I am connecting to 192.168.1.250:6666 and I get a connection error indicating that The EZ-B v4 has version 6 firmware but requires version 16. I have attached a JPEG of the screen I get with the error. Am I doing something wrong? I remember something on the forum I while back about this might not be working yet.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
It was a neat feature. In an educational setting it could be of tremendous use.
As for the education setting, we very much understand that. The issue is technically challenging that makes it impossible with the EZ-B v4's application protocol at this time. We would love for it to still be a valid feature, but it simply isn't possible at this time. I have a few ideas to bring it back in the future, but there are a lot of items on the list prior to it - don't worry, it won't be removed from the list
It is good to hear that EZ- Builder to ARC control may come back some day. It is a great idea for education. I believe I viewed the tutorial more recently than what you mentioned DJ. It may be mentioned in more than one tutorial. Check out the TCP client control tutorial I just checked it is still in there.
That's even better, because it's remote telepresence from any device anywhere in the world.
And even better, if you use the HTTP Custom Web Server than you can create your own web pages and make the client look awesome - and win your competition
Btw does this count as a costume for your Halloween draw!?
