i'm just doing a bit of research for an upcoming project... As a bit of background, i need to send serial commands over ethernet (TCP/IP) to an LED sign.
My current plan is to format serial messages into char matrices, and use jit.net.send to send the data across the network. I have looked at the serial object, but i don't think that will work as it doesn't list ethernet ports as communication ports.
One slight concern i have with jit.net.send is the windows users "special note" in the help file! I will be using Windows 7 so i presume i wont have to disable the firewall / internet connection service....
Any tips / recommendations welcome.
