AXB-NET PC Server example

joelwjoelw Junior MemberPosts: 175
Attached is example server software for demonstrating communication between an AXB-NET and PC. This software emulates an AXB-NET in server mode.

Example useage from a Windows command prompt:
axb-net_server -i:10.0.0.1

If you don't include ip address it will pick the first Ethernet adaptor.

It listens for incoming connections and print out the communications exchange. This example is limited to five AXB-NET clients.

If you are interested in controlling an Axlink bus via AXB-NET from a PC/Mac/or Linux drop me an email so we might discuss your software needs.

Note: AXB-NET is a discontinued product. Units can often be found on ebay.

    Actually I have a question.

    I got one of these wanting to try controling AMX with a web page. I got all the server software, and was able to get it communicating between the AXB-NET and the PC, but couldn't get it to do anything more. I created a touch panel in TPDesign 3 and exported it as HTML using the right IP address and such, but nothing.

    Do I actually have to go through and manually code everything to work with Weblinx?
