This is it, the final frontier (and chapter). Short of launching your Arduino into space, connecting it to the Internet is probably the closest that you will get to making the whole world your playground. Internet connectivity, in general, is an extremely complex topic; you could easily write entire volumes of books about the best way to interface the Arduino with the “Internet of things,” as it is now often called. Because it is infeasible to cover the multitude of ways you can interface your Arduino with the web, this chapter focuses on imparting some knowledge with regard to how network connectivity works with your Arduino and how you can use the Arduino Ethernet shield to both serve up web pages and to broadcast data to the web. Specifically, you learn about traversing your network topology, ...
