I have a Raspberry with win 10 IoT, working as a main server for a cloud of sensors. In the raspberry I have a server that broadcast its IP using UDP broadcast. Then all my distributed sensors notice it and connect to the Raspberry via TCP and the fun can start.
I added a web server to the raspberry to be able to monitor the status of my sensors and then I encountered a funny problem .. how do I discover the IP of the raspberry to be able to enter the website ??
All my sensors (and the PI) have hardcoded the SSID and pass of my WiFi at home. But the thing will need to be portable. In theory I plan to set the pi as Access Point and hardcode in the sensors the SSID of the Pi and have a portable system.
Can a Pi on Windows IoT be set as AP ? When doing so can it's IP be forced ?
