sending osc messages in max to another computer by internet/ethernet

July 11, 2011 | 9:14 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering how one can send osc messages to another machine, or have two machines communicate either wirelessly via the internet or through an ethernet cable. Can we use a udpsend/receive or something else?

im new to this, so any info would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

hi,

i just used net.tcp.send/net.tcp.recv extensively with two computers and a 50 meters ethernet cable.
look at /Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/java/help to find their helpfiles. its pretty straightforward.
(there are also net.udp.send and recv objects available).
tcp is more reliable but slower, udp is faster, but might drop packages sent.
