Connecting PC to xbee wifi directly

0 votes
Hello everyone
I'm trying to send data from an Arduino with XBee WiFi directly to a PC. I searched how to do it but I have not managed to find anyone who has managed to do it.
I saw that you can configure the xbee for an ad hoc network, but I wonder if you can use the PC as an end receiver.

I'm kind of new to this and could really use some help.

Thanks in advance

Yup, this can be done. Setup your XBee Wifi module as Ad-Hoc Creator and connect your PC with it over wifi.

Now use PuTTy or similar program (or your own code) to create a raw connection with XBee. Use proper addressing (IP/port) and you are all set to go.
