The WiFly_Test utility provided in the Examples is a simple terminal utility that establishes a connection and permits command flow and response with the WiFly through the Arduino terminal.
You’ll need to update the Credentials.h file with your network credentials, and set the Tx / Rx pin numbers as according to your setup.
It shows the connection details then enters a simple command-response loop for working with the WiFly chip.
Useful for tracing issues and debugging problems.
For those looking at the code in detail: NewSoftSerial can’t currently operate two concurrent parallel channels without conflict on the interrupt; so the WiFly communicates with NewSoftSerial and the regular old Serial drives the terminal.
