PIC32 TCP / IP Programming Connect To Web Page
Hi! I am new to the microchip tcp programming. I current have a PIC32MX360F512L board and have done some labs on it such as writing code for having the LEDs light up in order when counting from bit 0 to bit 7 and a couple others to familiarize with the PIC32 board. It is the dm320001 starter kit.
My question, however is how to connect to a web page using socket programming (TCP).
I would be using this board. I have MPLABX IDE, Compiler 32, and also using an ethernet cable. I read that the ethernet starter kit has a demo for this but I have a macbook pro and I read that the ethernet starter kits run on windows OS.
I have my PIC32 dm320001 board and the expansion board and one other board to put on my PIC32 and the ethernet cable. I have read a lot about how TCP IP programming works / socket programming. I understand HOW it works but do not see many code examples or a demo that I am able to use on my board to connect to a web page. Right now I just want to hook up the board and connect to a web page to just display the word "hello!" I just want to to be able to do something simple like this and bring up the web page and display a greeting.
Is there anyone that can help me understand how to do this? I have been having a lot of trouble finding a demo code and I can even open once downloaded and a lot of the other codes Im reading about seem to have way more complex actions going on whereas what I am doing is a relatively simple task it seems.
Thank you so much! I appreciate it!
Also please let me know if I need to provide any other information that I may have missed. I tried to cover everything.
I also have harmony downloaded bc it has all the tcp libraries and files that I suppose I need, compared to the MPLABX IDE and PIC32 that I previously had alone before adding harmony.
