Audio Architect Ethernet Trigger

I am trying to control a few basic functions of a linux machine using the ethernet trigger on a BLU-100. I wrote a basic python script that establishes a TCP connection with the BLU-100 and can successfully receive strings and carry out the tasks assigned to them. The only problem I'm having is that after about 30 minutes, the BLU-100 closes the connection. From searching around online, it looks like the BLU-100 might be closing the connection because the linux machine hasn't sent anything in response to the received packets (other than the initial handshake). If I set the linux machine to echo back the strings that the BLU-100 is sending should that fix the problem or will it bog down the BLU-100? The other solution I was considering is to setup the logic section of the BLU-100 to only initiate the TCP connection just before it sends the string and then end it right after. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

    There is no timeout. The BLU-100 does not explicitly close the connection after 30 minutes.

    Any chance you could share the python code? I am attempting something similar.

    Thanks Jerome.

    If you're still interested in the code, PM me.
