Udpsend / OSC over Ethernet connection?

June 5, 2010 | 10:18 am

Hi, I’m trying to get OSC sending via an ethernet connection on 2 macs. I figured it’d be as simple as entering in the second mac’s IP address as the host within a udpsend object… but no cigar.

Do I need to open up some kind of network connection between the two first? Am I missing anything?

Any help very much appreciated!

you should post the 2 patches… to see if it’s max issue, or network…

Are you entering a port too? Something like this works for me:

[udpsend ip.address.or.hostname 8000]


[udpreceive 8000]

You can try the ping command to check if the network connection is OK.

You also may have to allow Max in the Firewall Preferences.
