(solved)send to and having same device from different esp

#1 Post by riker1 » 21 May 2019, 12:30

Hi

I am wondering if it is possible to distinguish between 2 different devices .

Have 3 devices:
connect all via UDP Port

want to display some status values on ESP1.

ESP 2 and ESP 3 having same device name.

Can they be distinguished?
Or do I need unique device names?

Thanks

sorry, no I mean,

esp1 receiving variable von both ESP2 and ESP3

device#variable names are same on esp2 und 3

How to separate those , showing them on LCD, on ESP1.

is it like:

[ESP2#device#variabe]?

Does this clarify?

Unit Numbers are distinct.

Only same UDP Port.

but ...device names and variables ...?

You need to use the same task numbers on them all, that means you should be able to distinguish them.

Hi

thanks

but I do not understand how?

when you say, task # , this is on ESP1 (receiving)

I have a task there : lcd:

will display

Code: Select all

WRC:[status_control#Wifi_Reconnect_Counter]
but

Code: Select all

WRC:[status_control#Wifi_Reconnect_Counter]
is send by both ESP 2 and ESP 3.

So how to grab the

Code: Select all

WRC:[status_control#Wifi_Reconnect_Counter]
send by ESP2?

Thanks for clarification.

You need to set up the recieving task/unit to be identical to the sending task/unit and have it send using the ESP Easy controller.
