QuoteQuestion 1: Will a board reset with the rst button near the ethernet connector do instead of a full power down.
QuoteQuestion 2: I'm not getting any indication of activity on minicom, no illegal characters ( indicative of incorrect baud or data settings ) so, is there a character sequence that the board expects in order for it to recognize interaction across the serial port?( does it require any specific signals to be present on the 9 pin D-Type? (DCD, RTS, CTS ) Etc?

Quote from: Stanimir5F on January 23, 2018, 01:02:47 pmKeep in mind the different versions of the stack have different bin files for the webpage. Otherwise the result will be a messy page without any decent design.
Quote from: Stanimir5F on January 23, 2018, 01:02:47 pmThese files are located in "PIC-MAXI-WEB 5.42\TCPIP\Demo App\WebPages2". After you do that you have to "compile" a bin file using the MPFS2 tool which is included inside the stack. You can find it inside: "PIC-MAXI-WEB 5.42\Microchip\TCPIP Stack\Utilities\MPFS2.jar". There you select the source folder and the outbut file: *.bin.
