Connecting edision from different network

Hi,

I have just started with edision board (arduino). I have created an mobile app in which can interface with edision. But it works only when mobile device and edision are on same wireless network. Is there a way where I can interface mobile device which is on different wireless network and edision is on other wireless network.

Thanks

Hello vbhupendra,

You have to set up your router for port-forwarding. This setting allows the router to forward the data that arrives on a specific port to a local IP address previously set. This IP address would be the Edison's IP address. Please check the following links; they are about accessing an Arduino from an external network:

Although the links above are for Arduino projects, the principles discussed there apply for the Edison too. You will find that information useful.

Regards,

Diego.
