Online Minnow Server IoT Bridge Demo. See detailed instructions below the two embedded frames.
This is the online Minnow Server IoT Bridge demo which shows how to access an embedded web server behind a firewall. There are currently too many users using the online 'repl.it' C compiler. However, you may download the C code as explained in the section "Clone the repl.it setup" below. The instructions below configure the C code for IoT bridge mode.
Compile and run the code as explained below. The IoT bridge mode should kick in three seconds after starting the compiled code, and you should see the simulated device appearing as a link in the pane below. Click your device link and login with the credentials root/password. See the DZone article below for details on how to use the example application.
The service 'repl.it' enables online compiling of the Minnow Server and example code. The example code is configured for IoT bridge mode. Click the 'repl.it' start button above and wait for the Minnow Server C code to compile and start. Note: this may take several seconds. You should eventually see the Minnow Server example start and print information in the top right pane (the console). The IoT bridge mode should kick in after another three seconds, and you should see the simulated device appearing as a link in the bottom pane above. Find the device by the repl.it number and click the link in the bottom pane. Login with the credentials root/password. See the article Device Management via IoT or Embedded Web Server? for details.
