I'm starting work on an installation that will use network data from things like card access use, temperature, hvac settings, electricity usage, etc...
To get things started, I've been trying to get netsend and netreceive to work between 2 Macs. I'm using Network Utility to see what ports are in use, and although I'm able to send successfully using a few of them, I am unable to receive. So, a couple of questions...
Are netsend/receive the right objects for me to be using in the 1st place?
Should I be creating my own port somehow or looking for a specific port that's already being detected by my system?
I've tried turning Firewalls off on the computers, and also made sure that PD is allowed to communicate.
