I want to know how can I start a Ping on a vDevice?
At first: I have create a vDevice (Ping) and give it the IP-Address “192.168.0.X”.
Second: At the the Blockly Board, I added a new scene with the command –>
If vDevice “Ping” Status = True
Do vDevice “PC Status” = True/On
Else vDevice “PC Status” = False/Off
My scene jumped directly to Else. I guess that the Ping command not realy started.
In the seetings of the virtual Device I have found an entry of Ping Status (False).
Now I’m not sure if the entry in the settings the default status or the current updated status.
Thanks for your help and apologize my bad english 🙂
I found out you can use for instance the skype port, if you have it installed.
The Facebook Messenger port however does not work.
In the end I installed a webserver on my phone that is always listening on port 12345. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.ubi.common.http.server
NOTE: inside the settings you have to enable the authentication and set up a strong password.
Otherwise users can access the content of your device.
I also recommend to make it start automatically with your device.
So now you can always see whether your device is enabled, or that you are at home if you set it up on your phone.
