I have used network communication with Max many times successfully. I am currently testing a system that uses jit.net.send/rcv for tcp communication over WAN networks. All possible configurations have been made (port forwarded, static ips, firewalls, etc) but I can't connect from a client to the server!!!
If I use the help file of jit.net.send with the external ip of the receiving computer (btw in this example the same computer with its external ip) and the port number, which is open and tested with Network Utility, Terminal and websites like http://www.canyouseeme.org/
everything shows that my port is open. If I change the external ip to localhost or stream in the local network everything is fine. I can't explain why it is not working with the external ip!!!
Please, if someone has an idea to fix this let me know....cheers!!!
***also to add that using the command netstat -an |grep 7502 |grep LISTEN in terminal I get the following error....does it mean that I don't receive any data from the jit.net.send object? Why is that?
netstat -an |grep 7502 |grep LISTEN
tcp4 0 0 *.7502 *.* LISTEN
