I have a finnicky and so-far unresolvable problem. I have been trying to send tcp 'packets' (a list of 61 ints) to a dmx interface via ethernet.
I know I have the protocol for the device correct because I have used my patch on a Mac with sadam.tcpSender sending the packets -- without complaint -- to the interface, to control some lights.
porting to windows is another story.
I have used the .exe version of sadam.tcpSender but it freezes max.
so, I tried net.tcp.send, which when in a standalone, refuses to talk to the interface (at least it does not freeze max). Does this object send bytes?
another 3rd-party external I have used results in a crash (when in a standalone, even though it seems to work OK in a the Max environment).
After building these standalone(s) I have included the java files required in the /java/lib and /java/classes directories of the standalone(s) and I know the mxj object operates for at least a while (a few seconds) as it posts messages to the status window, saying it has connected to a port and address.
Is there something obvious I'm doing wrong-- I'm pretty much at my wits end here-- any advice apreciated.
