Require: IP-Symcon >= 3.3
The UDP socket opens an interface which is often used for communication between the gateway/splitter instance and the connected device. It uses the UDP protocol.
Integration in IP-Symcon
A new UDP socket instance can be created via "+" in the object tree.
The following settings can be made on the configuration page.
|Open Socket||Whether the socket should be open or closed.|
|Send-Host||Which IP address the data should be sent to.|
|Send-Port||On which port the data should be sent.|
|Receive-Host||On which TCP interface the data should be listened to.|
|Receive-Port||On which port the data should be listened to.|
|Activate Broadcast||When activated, the UDP socket sends to the broadcast address of the selected Receive-Host interface. The entered Send-Host address is irrelevant.|
|Activate Reuse Address||Allows other programs to listen to the Receive-Port when the "Reuse address" is also activated.|
Only a click on "Apply" saves the settings and then an attempt is made to establish the connection.
