Doh!

Thanks so much - works perfectly.

Re: Telnet Server

This is very useful. but I have a strange problem when typing. I am connecting to the ESP8266 module over my LAN. I am using Putty for telnet. It connects immediately and in the Putty window I see the same flow of stuff on REPL as I am seeing through the serial connection. When I type I cannot see w...

"Flash wearing behaviour"

It would be really useful to have a definitive list of uPy commands which cause values to be saved in flash to as to persist reboots...

Obviously we have recently been made aware of the 'network' methods..

Others?

Thanks

Re: Avoid flash wearing by altering behavior originally introduced by Espressif (the inventor of the ESP8266)

To be fair, adding an optional parameter, or an additional function that is not available in all ports, keeps the API backward-compatible, but makes the new code incompatible between the ports. The only confusion would potentially be for someone using the 'newversion' function on a port other than ...

Re: Avoid flash wearing by altering behavior originally introduced by Espressif (the inventor of the ESP8266)

I had the same point: two more API or an optional parameter is almost the same stuff and I think it was originally proposed by someone. But I guess the questions here are lost in translation (quote from an old movie with Bill Murray and Scarlett Joahnsson). Apologies to the OP in that case! I spell...

Re: Avoid flash wearing by altering behavior originally introduced by Espressif (the inventor of the ESP8266)

Please excuse me if this is a stupid question! It's just not obvious to me that providing the 'extra' functionality of NOT saving to flash will be "backward-incompatible and will confuse some users." [The phrase in the user poll...] Let's assume you have a python function - lets call it "oldversion"...

Re: Support loading of .mpy files

If you build the image, you can simply put your python sources in the modules subdirectory for that build, I do beg your pardon, I now realise that I was not so clear. I thought that since the announcement of the mpy files possibility, I had to do something different from before... I now see that n...

Thank you for this new version Robert. - It works perfectly!

Thinking about it, in my application, there is a potentially an advantage in having it respond to both interfaces....

Thanks too for the Nautilus tip - also very useful!

Re: FTP Server

Try the attached version, which I just pulled from the github site Thanks for the fast reply. Initially I got the same error (ECONNREFUSED). But then I looked at the other settings in Filezilla and set the "Tranfer settings" tab to "Active" (from "Default")... it works like a charm - thank you so m...
