The first thing that you need to understand is that Netduino can act as a server that accepts web page requests. Based on the content of the web requests, one can turn on/off LEDs. Therefore we can create an Android application that sends HttpPosts and has full control on our LEDs. It sounds easy right?

In our example we hosted the Netduino server locally by connected the Ethernet cable to the router and connected the Nexus 7 via the Wi-Fi.
