Topic: Error: (61) Connection refused

I am having trouble getting a connection to a new ESP8266 device....

I have used this before and it's SSID is "Sky"

My iPad is connected to the "Sky" WiFi network, but when RemoteXY tries to connect "New WiFi point device" I get "Error: (61) Connection refused"

Can anyone help me with this issue....

Re: Error: (61) Connection refused

SoftwareSerial ESP8266(REMOTEXY_SERIAL_RX, REMOTEXY_SERIAL_TX);   //init the serial protocol, define the RX and TX pins
....
ESP8266.begin(REMOTEXY_SERIAL_SPEED);

Why do you add these lines to the code?

Are you performing these functions  ?
