Thankyou for your great book. I have a background in electronics but know nothing about networking or internet. Traditional books on micrcontroller technology focus upon low-level topics but what I like about the Arduino community and your book is that it abstracts to more far reaching topics of interactivity, networking etc. I am learning lots!
Can you please help me understand something in your book, bare in mind my ignorance of this topic. I am working through Chapter 8 “Networking with Arduino” and on p164 where you describe DAYTIME NTP services I can’t get Putty to give me an interactive terminal to enter commands as per: maik> telnet time.nist.gov 13 … … or as per p166 maik> host time.nist.gov ….. maik> dig +short time.nist.gov …etc etc I can get Putty on a telnet service to connect to e.g. time.nist.gov by typing in the host name before opening the session but but not from the command line like you do, and more importantly I do not now how to open a session to get the interactively managed session as per p166 where you get ip addresses and do pings etc can you help me understand:
- What program I use for this ?
- What I connect to and how I open an interactive session where the commnds can be typed to do as per p166.
Also I am using Windows 7 on a PC, not Linux etc.
