Post Terminal program for windows?
Hi
I am new to programming hardware and am trying to follow Pauls tutorial for the (ESP8266) wireless WIFI transceiver (HCMODU0085)
. I have all the connections made and have tried various programs to send the AT commands but I don't seem to get and response from the ESP8266.

What is the best windows program to use? Any idea what program is used in the tutorial?

Many thanks

Lea

The two I would personally recommend is either Terminal by Br@y: https://sites.google.com/site/terminalbpp/

Or Putty: http://www.putty.org/


Avoid using the Windows terminal program, it doesn't work well for this sort of thing.

Just in case anyone else is struggling, I found the baud rate needed to be set at 115200. I am now using the arduino IDE with the ESP8266 board added. you can send AT commands via the serial monitor and upload code from the main window. It's now really easy to get programs onto the esp8266.
