Can I use the Ethernet Shield as BOTH client to ThingSpeak and also as a Web Server to check the status or receive web clients connections to the Arduino ?


I check all the examples, it is either as a client or server but no both simultaneously...


Is it possible ?

I am sure you can do this. Arduino Ethernet uses Wiznet and I think you can have 4 TCP/IP sockets in use. One could be a client, and another could be a server.

You might have to remove debug info (printing to the serial port) to free up the processor to handle both connections. The idea is to have one socket listening and one socket talking.
