So i'm quite new to max and have been trying to trigger a lighting program that takes simple string commands (example. Y"hello world",10,13) over ethernet. Sadly I haven't been given much to work on in the company's forum. The packets are UDP/IP based and should go to port 6553 in broadcast mode.
The structure of the UDP/IP packets are:
where long32 is 4 bytes, word16 is 2 bytes and byte is 1 byte.
I figured the aka.datagram might be the way of doing this but I was unable to get the lighting program to respond to any of the values or strings (be they in hex or ascii). Being quite a newbie i figure i must be missing the proper steps to create the packet correctly. Any help, guidance or ideas would greatly be appreciated.
