    The Arduino IDE can find the IP address of the ESP8266 (mDNS:arduino) when it is programmed with OTA, but we also have ESP-LINK software, which allows the ESP8266 to work in transparent (TCP / IP-Serial) mode allowing reprogramming of microcontrollers like Atmega328 (Arduino UNO / Nano / Pro Mini etc).

    The Service Browser app quickly finds the IP address of the ESP8266, just as the Arduino IDE does.

    Is there any library for basic4android with this functionality?

    How to make an app compiled in B4A find the IP address of ESP8266, in the same way as the Arduino IDE or the App Service Browser?

    The source code of the App Service Browser is available at the following link:
    (Could it be adapted to a library?)
