How to get rid of *HELLO* message with WiFly

Post by rgelb » Sat Jan 22, 2011 7:34 pm

Every time WiFly sends something out, it prepends *HELLO*. How do I get rid of it? It seems to confuse browsers.

The command you want to use is "set comm remote 0"

This sets the string automatically delivered to remote clients on connection, setting 0 disables it.

Best of luck!

While your question has been answered, if you're using an Arduino (or--with some hand waving--another AVR-based chip) you might like to look at the WiFly Shield code library alpha 2 release which handles this and other issues transparently.
