I am working on a project that uses an RPi as a data logger for some sensors. The unit will be remote and with no internet connection.
At some preassigned time the RPi will power on (relay controlled by Teensy), and file the data logged by the sensors. During this 'on' window a user can then access the RPi via WiFi ( I have made the RPi a WiFi access point) and then copy or download the relevant files. After a given period of being on the RPi will shutdown (crontab) and then the Teensy will pull the plug.
My problem is that I can't seem to understand how to access the files on the RPi. I have it working as an access point but what then?
I have tried SFTP using Filezilla and WinSCP but they cant access the Pi. I have tried using the Pi's name for host name and the static IP addr, to no avail. I'm missing something here.
I really hope someone can help me out with a poke in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
