Re: Upload file of 250kB or more

I got away from using FTP because that's zu complicated for the future users. Robert's FTP Server funktioniert wunderbar mit curl(1). Back to english as to not exclude anyone from the discussion. If your preference is a browser based interface, I am wondering if there might be some JS library out t...

Re: Telnet Server

Telnet and ftp are also included in the CC3200 port (Wipy1) as C code. AFAIK, that port was maintained by Danuel Campora. Pycom resp. Daniel used this code for the Pycom products. Does that mean they have password protected but unencrypted telnet and ftp servers? If so I suggest that people check o...

Re: Telnet Server

I'm just trying to find a telnet server that will work with the Pymakr extension for VS Code. It was created for the Pycom telnet server and requires authentication to connect. Understood. However, as a general rule of thumb I would always expect the more powerful system to accommodate for the limi...

Re: Telnet Server

Are there any MicroPython telnet server libraries that support authentication? Any sort of password based authentication without an encrypted connection is not going to give you added security on a telnet protocol. You won't be able to perform something like server side provided salt with MD5 hashi...

Re: plant watering

For making sure there is water in the reservoir a simple float switch should do. That switch would be closed if there is water in the reservoir and open where there isn't. Think of the principle of a sump pump or the condensate pump of an air condition system. The condensate pump of an air condition...

Re: plant watering

Never rely on your program to be fail safe. Always build safety into your circuit.

If there is no water, the whole thing should shut down.

Think like that.

Picocom works fine with ESP8266 and ESP32 boards here on CentOS 7. Is your user a member of the dialout group?

Re: firmware install problem

Right, nothing obvious in that schematic that could explain the problem.

Have you tried to compile the firmware (tag v1.12 checked out) without any extra modules?

Re: firmware install problem

Hard to tell without more details about that extra module and how the two boards differ in wiring. Just speculating, but could it be that the extra module is mucking with GPIO(s) that are connected to vital things on the "custom board"?
