    send commands

    lbadosa
      Hello I need to send commands through ethernet connections, specifing an IP address and port... similar some xTras with RS-232 protocol, but with ethernet. Are there any command or xTra?
      Thank you

          What type of device do you need to send commands to?

          Using Director's multiuser xtra, it is fairly easy to send commands from
          one Director movie to another Director movie via TCP/IP. Perhaps then
          the receiving Director movie can communicate with the device you are
          trying to control.

          Can you provide more information?

              My apologies, it is still not clear to me exactly what you are trying to
              achieve. Can you be a bit more specific?

              My experience with video projectors is limited to connecting them to the
              VGA port on a laptop to project an presentation onto a screen. Things
              like powering them on, focusing, adjusting the image, etc, I've only
              done using the buttons on the projector itself.

              Is this the sort of "manage" tasks you are referring to? Does the
              projector you are referring to have some interface with a PC that allows
              you to do these thing via the computer?
