i have used a serial to ethernet module , initially i configured that S2E module with a static IP, which i got when i connected it to my PC. Now i have programmed the gui using VB6. i made a winsock control by giving this static IP which i configured. Now the problem is, should we host this gui to be accessed from anywhere ? cant we give that GUI as a .exe file for the user to access? . And also that i tested the device by connecting it to the modem in my pc and tried operating it from my laptop through the exe file i made. but it shows error message , like the ethernet connection is missing.
please kindly help with this issue, should i host it to access it?
