Okay because so many people are having problems with the TCP/IP stuff here is the dummies guide. :grin: ( Little basic knowledge required )

1. Make sure that the server has version at least 2.0
2. Make sure that Quiet mode and 1.x compatibilty are OFF
3. Make sure that the IP address of the computer that you are going to run tcpclient2.exe from is in the list. (also try 127.0.0.1 for localhost)
4. Make sure that the firewall is not blocking this IP traffic. (DISABLE firewall to be sure)
5. ENABLE the plugin ( Press F9, the green light will come on )
6. Add a command and 'learn' the eventstring to the command -> YOU HAVE TO select TCP/IP server from the drop down box next to learn.
7. Go to a dos box on the client computer
8. Type : tcpclient2 [hostaddress] [port] [password] [eventstring]
9. On the host computer Girders light will have blinked yellow, and the command will have been executed.

Of course, you can also use the Girder TCP/IP client 2 action plugin. Thus routing messages between 2 girders on 2 different computers. ( Across the globe if needed )

You'll first need to assign the eventstring that you are sending to a command. If this makes no sense to you then read the getting started guide.

note: this guide above is only for the _old_ tcpip server. Read the "ievent_readme.txt" in the help directory for the latest info.

Do you have to use a Dos box can you send a command from inside girder on one machine (client) to another system running Girder.

So basically the Girder event on the server is triggered by an event on the client girder which sends the ip address and eventstring.

So Girder on the client receives an ir command and sends an evenstring over TCPip to the Server running girder which executes another eventstring.

Yes?

Great proggy. I've managed to set it up on Win2K server okay. Using the local keyboard I can execute events. However when I try to use ieventc.exe it receives the command okay, accepts the connection, flashed the LED to orange, and reports success, but nothing happens.
Colud you tell me what exactly the [eventstring] should be? or is there anything else I should check?
TIA

Cheers RonB, I eventually clicked on the rename for [Eventstring] and all of a sudden everything made sense! BTW I did read the entire forum (bad lurker) & getting started. All v.clear except the Doh! factor :oops: thanx 4 the speedy reply... would have replied earlier but some probs. with ISP.

Cheers

Hi,

This has changed significantly for G4. See the manual and then ask questions in the G4 forum.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the fast Reply, however in the manual (I assume it's called Generic IP now) I only find:
"Generic IP Plugin
Depreciated. This will be removed prior to the end of the Beta programme.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

File: genericip.dll Device: 189. "

I hoped their might be some docu ?

greetings

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can help me with my issue. I would like to send some commands through the internet (Internet Explorer) to my server which is hosting Girder.

I can RDP (remote desktop / terminal services) into my server and using the keyboard issue the commands to my IR. I just don't want to RDP anymore, is there a way to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Jose

Thanks Birty for your reply. I've been using Girder 3.3 but I'll give v4 a try.

You didn't state which web server you are using...

There is an implementation of the Girder TCP Client with examples for IIS that I wrote a couple of years ago.

It can be found at http://www.promixis.com/download.php?ID=601

I have 3 computers connected with a 4 port router.

Stuck on Step #1 - Server v2.0?? :lol:

Is that the Girder Internet Event Server or Windows Server??

Neither, It is the version of Girder. The top message in this thread is from 2002.

Before we go any further with this, we need to know which version of Girder you are using.
