Hi, I've attached a patch that I've been working on. The goal is to connect four computers via WLAN for synced control. The computers themselves often change, as does the router. I built a patch that does the following:
- Determines each computer's IP address
- Sends the IP address to all the other computers
- Allows any computer to send information to the others
I have been having problems with the patch, though. The two computers I have at home always connect. However, in the wild, with unknown computers, often only two or three computers will connect with each other. Other times, all four will correctly connect. Is there some problem in my logic here? Also, I could accomplish a similar feat simply with net.maxhole without all this setup. Is there any advantage to using UDP to send messages across the network? (I was told this at one time, but now I'm doubting it). The messages are time and tempo related and therefore should have high priority. My experience with net.maxhole is that messages often get dropped.
Thanks for any help developing this idea!
