Hey, i had a few questions, Ive been fiddling around with winscp for a bit here, and checking their posts etc, but i cant find anything on how to run a file on the edison. Im sure thats because its so obvious, but i must have missed a global message
Ill be posting more questions in the comments
My goal is to transfer data realtime (within 500 ms) over wifi using winscp onto the edison, and for the edison to use the inputs for things like lights and servos.
Im very new to winscp though, im connected fine, and ive got drag and drop down.
Also, I want the edison to read inputs from an arduino plugged into my computer over wifi.
for testings sake, ignoring the wifi for now, could i get the edison to read serial data straight from the arduino, or maybe i do a temp text file and edison reads from that. What do you recommend and maybe a tip to get started.
Thank you for your interest in our Intel products.
You can find a guide on using Winscp with Intel Edison here: https://github.com/w4ilun/edison-guides/wiki/Using-WinSCP-with-Intel-Edison
Hope this helps.
Thanks for responding, I had used that earlier, thats how i got started with winscp
What i dont really understand is: I want my edison to access realtime data from my computer, and I am not really sure how to get started, I can manually transfer files to the edison using winscp, but I want it all automated.
How do you recommend I do that? My ideas were: Pushing the serial code to the edison somehow, or using putty to turn it into a txt file through a path onto the edison. Still trying to understand all the concepts though.
WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, FTP client, WebDAV client, S3 client and SCP client for Windows. Its main function is file transfer between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this, WinSCP offers scripting and basic file manager functionality. I do not think WinSCP offers the functionality you are looking for, WinSCP is used for file transfer and file management. So you would have to transfer files to Edison whenever modifications are done in the host machine. The Intel System Studio IoT Edition may be the best option to write programs in the host machine and execute them in Edison: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/tools-ide/ide/iss-iot-edition https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/tools-ide/ide/iss-iot-edition.
An alternative would be to edit and modify files directly in Edison from the host machine, and use an ssh tool (like PuTTY or MobaXterm) to compile/run the program. I believe MobaXterm also provides similar file manager functionality, I'd suggest to look for more information on their website https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/ https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/
Hope this helps.
