Yes kind of. With my laptop I can't connect - with any phone/tablet I tried (tried with 4 different co-workers phones) it works. And with other laptops (tested 3 other) it works too. I flashed a old firmware and there it works for my laptop too... So something must have changed my laptop / wifi controller doesnt like. I will try to wireshark what exactly happens ;).
Does anybody know, if there is a NTP-lib around? I only know the NTPClient.ino. But perhaps there is something easier to integrate, and releasing the udp-channel after getting the time infos.
@brutzler hrhr, I'm working on a sntp lib to work with the Time library from the Arduino project literally just now. Is that what you are looking for? If so, give me an hour and I put a first version on github
I "need" it for time controlled warmwater-heater. Want to keep a software-clock, sychronized via internet on startup and every x hours.
Actually it doesn't use a handmade udp call, expressif provides an sntp client, my library is just a wrapper for that so it can be used with the mentioned time lib
the ESP has ntp support
@brutzler yeah, that should work, I'm running my wordclock with that
