Hi,

What do you mean that you need debug tools for monitoring your download process ?

Please help describe your requirements in details.

Thanks.

Hi Espressif:

The attached files are what I copied from espressif web site links:
(http://www.espressif.com/support/explor ... rted-guide)
(1) 6.2 Check Log File
In the highlight blocks,it describes that I can check the log printed on the terminal end
with serial port debug tools. So what I really needs is to employ the serial port debug tool
to monitor my downloading process. So, I did not know how to use you provided .rar files
because there is no .exe file can be executed. I do not know how to launch these .py files.

(2) ESP8266 IoT Demo
In the second highlight block, Where and how I can see these messages ? Are these messages are seen from the
debug tools?

Hi,

ESP8266EX does not support the hardware debug tools, so you need to debug by add log print through UART.

You can use minicom or other uart program to check the log.

More questions, please let us know.

Thanks.

Hi,

About how to use minicom, you can google it by yourselves.
Below is the instruction about how to set special baudrate, 74880 for example.
1. Please install the program "setserial" by yum or dnf or apt-get.
2. than use our script in attachments(or you can use setserial by yourself).
3. use minicom with the baudrate 38400.

Why do you need to monitor the download process? Minicom here is used to monitor the program execution.

Thanks.
