Hi, I know this Tempest plugin (P2P) is already outdated and replaced with the new Multisync but perhaps someone has a copy of it (can't find any working links) and I'm curious about this and would like to give this a try.

Thanks.

If I remember, tempest handled UDP while multisync uses TCP.

I never tried tempest, but it was written by Benjamin, who is now Seditious. You might send him a PM, though it has been a long time since he worked on either of those.

Matrix1 also offers excellent socket networking for both protocols.

Thanks Ortu! I already got Matrix1 for other stuff and I did not know that it supports networking features. Could you point out some links or existing guides?

Particularly I'm interested in UDP P2P since Multisync already handles tcp client/server.

Matrix1 comes with pretty good help file documentation. Matrix1Util_28 contains the socket commands.

It is pretty straight forward,

To open a local socket:
socket = new udp socket()
Bind socket (socket, port)

To connect to a remote socket:
socket = new udp socket()
Connect socket (socket, remotehost, port)

I can post a basic example tonight if you need

here you go:



run the .exe from the command line, you will run the first instance using 'application.exe -s 9999' then run a second instance using 'application.exe 127.0.0.1 9999'

windows firewall may ask you to allow the application.

You will see the first instance report that it has bound the socket. You will see the second instance report that it has connected and you will see the message sent by the second instance received and printed by the first instance.
