Hello Sara & Rui Santos,
I find your tutorials of excellent level, understandable and above all repeatable even for whom like myself, a former mechanical engineer, professor of Mechanics Applied to Machines for 40 years, currently retired, has recently approached to the world of microcontrollers passing from Arduino to ESP8266 and now to ESP32.
Really congratulations and thanks for the work you do !!!
I submit three questions I apologize in advance of the banality of the questions.
FIRST Question: Is it possible to update the code on ESP32 when the network address of the home wifi is different from that of the ESP32 support wifi?
(they are 65 km away).
SECOND Question: if the ESP32 is not physically reachable and therefore it is not possible to click the BOOT button during the connection, the only way is to connect the 10 microFarad capacitor between EN and GND?
THIRD Question: if the ESP32 is not physically reachable and therefore it is not possible to click the RST button to start the runnaggio, how can this be solved?
- I have already consulted and successfully used your guide: https://randomnerdtutorials.com/esp32-over-the-air-ota-programming/
- now that I have enrolled in the course, I am studying: https://rntlab.com/module-13/esp32-over-the-air-ota-programming-web-updater/
but at the moment it still doesn’t work for me.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
I believe all of your questions can be answered/achieved by using IOTAppStory.
I kinda wish Rui/Sara would do a tutorial for it.
1) As Steve Mercer said, the only solution that I know is using IOTAppStory to be honest I’ve never used it, but I recommend using this video to learn how it works:
ESP32 Over the Air only works on your local network…
2) With these examples the ESP should auto-restart after receiving the new firmware (no need to press the BOOT button)
I hope that helps!
Thanks for the answer,
I will treasure your advice,
I will study it.
I actually thought I would give it a try myself and found this is is in a state of fluctuation. It’s not actually working for me. I have asked a few questions and will see how far I get.
Working through issues with IOTAppStory now and will advise of how I get on. First issue fixed.
