@douwebakker Many of us here started learning at the randomnerdstutorial website, here is the link HERE Also, I have not used an FTDI to program an esp8266, esp32, esp32-CAM in ages, all my boards are now USB plus reset plus boot switches. Spend a few months reading the nerds, maybe buy some courses then try the samples, and some of Bills videos until you are comfortable. Then make some changes to one of those. Good luck.

@zander, You already Provided that link in a previous post.

I was familiar with it before. I also bought some of his books online.

@douwebakker Great, he is a great resource.

@robotBuilder, I also bought a serial usb programmer, but one of a different type.
Programming is much easier with this than via the rx and tx connections of the arduino uno

@zander 

These are the two ESP32 boards I bought.  Jaycar and Altronics don't seem to have the MB boards.

It may be some time before I get around to use any of them otherwise I might have been able to work through @douwebakker issues by duplicating whatever it was he was trying to do or learn.

@robotbuilder I got mine on amazon.ca HERE

I used 2 boards and did a total of 8 tests but his scenario didn't do anything, I think I misunderstood.

@zander,  It has nothing to do with the previous IDE issues. Everything works as it should. I'm just curious how things work. Normally you can give AT commands via the serial monitor and the ESP answers back. For example, command "AT" returns "OK". And so the comaand "AT+RST" restarts the ESP8266.

Wow, thanks... I never even knew that ESP8266 supported AT commands!

I remember running such commands in Windows 95/8/ME, etc... for dialup stuff!

Glad to see this is still around... we will need it for the up and coming apocalypse!

Cheers
