Hi BR,


communication between two PCs is usually done using some kind of network protocol - you can use anything from UDP to network streams…

Best regards,

using LV2011SP1 + LV2017 (+LV2020 sometimes) on Win10+cRIO

Since I am not so familar with network protocol. it would be great if you give some INFO.

I recommend looking at the Simple Messaging Reference Library that NI has released.  Use the TCP/IP version of it.


FYI, TCP/IP is a communication protocol that is used to communicate between two computers.  It is what the internet uses.  So you just need a network switch or router between your computers and you can talk to each other with their IP address.

There are only two ways to tell somebody thanks: Kudos and Marked Solutions
