Read,Write Network File
I have a lot of systems on the same network, and a bunch of them are extremely similar. I want to be able to have a file on the network that they can read to change some of the variables. If, for instance, I want to change the nightly shutdown time, I'd rather have the masters read a CSV or whatever, rather than manually change all of them in debugger or with a recompile. I know how to read and write to a local file on the master, but from what I've seen I can't write to a Windows network location.
Before I reinvent the wheel, is anyone doing something similar? I can stick an NX-1200 or 2200 on the network and use it as a file server if I need to, but I'm assuming that would also require a huge list of master to masters. That's ok if it won't choke the "server", but ideally it would be a Windows or Linux location.
I played around with the FTP method mentioned on the forum, but I'd much rather just socket connect, and read the file if at all possible.
I'm good with how I'd format and parse the file, I just don't know the best way to actually access it. Thanks in advance for any help.
