First, you DO NOT NEED an Arduino Internet Shield. The Internet to Serial Proxy open the chosen TCP/IP port and listen to it. When it get a connection, it transmit what it get to the connected serial port. The data send from the Arduino are also sent to a specified URL. It’s also monitor what’s the Arduino send through the serial port. It’s pretty basic. You can also send a manually entered string to the serial device.
